HistoryLink.org Essay 7042

Click here to start the tour

This is a tour of the Century 21 Exposition, better known as the Seattle World's Fair of 1962. It was written by Alan J. Stein and designed by Chris Goodman.

Your Fantastic Journey Begins

We start our day in downtown Seattle, more than a mile from the Seattle World's Fair. Don't worry, the futuristic Monorail will take us there in the blink of an eye. The Monorail has been described as a preview of mass transit of the future.

At Westlake Mall, moving sidewalks, or "speed ramps," will glide you up to the Monorail Terminal. Fares are 50 cents one-way, and 75 cents round trip. Kids ride for 35 cents one way and 50 cents round trip.

Have a seat and prepare for the future. It's only 95 seconds away!
