In 1939 the world was treated to two World's Fairs. While the New York one is the better known of the two, San Francisco also entertained visitors with the Golden Gate International Exposition. Held on the newly built Treasure Island, the GGIE was a smaller event, featuring pavilions with striking architectural designs, fountains, statues and colorful floral displays. The Exposition was successful enough that it was retained for a second season in 1940. The GGIE is also known as the 1939-40 San Francisco World's Fair.
