    Construction of Gas Industry Pavilion, Century 21 Exposition (Seattle World's Fair). “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. The educational exhibit explains the sources, processing, by-products and distribution of gas from early Greek times to the present. 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 sponsoring the exhibit.” (Official Guide Book, Seattle World's Fair 1962. Seattle: Acme Publications. p. 45.)

    Construction, Century 21 Exposition (Seattle World's Fair). Arches of the Federal Science Pavilion, designed by Minoru Yamasaki and Associates and Naramore, Bain, Brady & Johanson, visible to the left: “The lacy pattern of this six-unit complex placed around a central court with its 100-ft. high arches is in decided contrast to the forcefulness of Coliseum 21. In a sense, the pavilion is a salute to concrete, for it is believed to represent the largest single use of precast and prestressed structural components in the nation.” (An Architect’s Guidebook to the Seattle World’s Fair. Seattle, Pacific Builder and Engineer, April 1962, p. 21) Christian Witness Pavilion, designed by Durham, Anderson & Freed, visible to the right. "Laminated wood arches, reaching 50 ft. in height and arranged in series of umbrellas, support suspended ceiling." (An Architect’s Guidebook to the Seattle World’s Fair. Seattle, Pacific Builder and Engineer, April 1962, p. 31)

    Sermons from Science Pavilion, Century 21 Exposition (Seattle World’s Fair). “This unique religious display is designed to ‘literally shock’ visitors into the close connection between God and science. Dr. George Speake, from the Moody Institute, says his pavilion is not a church but a place where ‘people can see the truth of a living God in an atmosphere of cold, calculated science.’ Dr. Speake, Mgr.” (Official press book : Seattle World's Fair 1962.

    Poster column on Show Street at the Century 21 Exposition (Seattle World's Fair). Show Street was the "adult entertainment" section of the Century 21 Exposition."With a thought that a sample of the best of everything belongs at a World's Fair, the northeast corner of the Fairgrounds is devoted to adult entertainment. This area is called Show Street U.S.A. Show Street offers food and drink, exciting show girls, the natural and the unusual. It's a great place to spend an evening."

    Fairgoers in front of Plywood Home of Living Light, Century 21 Exposition (Seattle World's Fair). "The unique Home of Living Light for Tomorrow, The Douglas Fir Plywood Association Exhibit which dramatizes the many possibilities of a completely new approach to home construction, is located on Freedom Way, at the north end of the Boulevards of the World. The Practical Builder, a trade publication, cooperated in the design of the house, which was created by the Tacoma architectural firm of Liddle and Jones. The walls are made of continuous wood paneling which, like corrugated packing paper, is rigid in one direction and flexible in the other. The results are walls that can take shape and still support the required roof loads." (Official Guide Book, Seattle World's Fair 1962. Seattle: Acme Publications. p. 47.)
