|Historical Notes||"The pillars supporting the roof of the Gas Pavilion, on Boulevard 21, double as natural gas torches. In the center of the pavilion is a gas-dial clock. Underneath the serrated roof is a graphic report on the uses of natural gas today and a projection of its uses in the year 2001... Time is told on the roof-top clock by the number of torches burning, while the hours are 'struck' by bursts of flame from the central pillar. Ninety-one gas distribution companies are co-sponsoring the exhibit." (Century 21 Exposition. (1962). Official Guide Book, Seattle World's Fair 1962. Seattle: Acme Publications. p. 45)
