IPTC INFO
CaptionThe Exposition site combines to an extraordinary degree the qualities of beauty adaptability and convenience. It is a natural amphitheatre fronting on the wonderful island-dotted Bay of San Francisco just inside the famous Golden Gate. Towering wooded heights flank it at each end while at its back the hills roll up sharply. All this is in the very heart of the best residential district of San Francisco and within fifteen minutes’ street car ride from the City Hall. The view facing north is across the sparkling waters of the Bay— a land-locked harbor which resembled a great mountain lake more than an arm of the sea. It is rimmed around by mountain with haughty Tamalpais towering over all. Under the turquoise California sky drenched with sunshine and color it is a scene at once exquisitely beautiful and solemnly majestic. With this wonderful scene as a background the architects artists and landscape gardeners of the Exposition have planned and erected a city straight out of a beautiful dream. It can not be described in words nor adequately shown in picture although an attempt to give the reader of its general color effect appears elsewhere in this booklet. The proximity of the site to a world gateway is a wonderful advantage. Through the portals of the Golden Gate the nations of the earth can bring their richest offerings to the very gates of the Exposition avoiding a long continental haul and consequent damage from reshipping. The site adapts itself to the carrying out of wonderful aquatic displays. Carnivals maneuvers by the fleets of all nations international yacht racing motor boat racing exhibitions by submarines and hydroplanes all will be indulged in in the immediate foreground of the Exposition palaces. The entire navies of the world can here assemble and land their crews right on the edge of the beautiful “Marina.”
HeadlineThe San Francisco Bay Front will again be the site of the awesome celebration of human spirit and ingenuity in taming the oceans as it hosts the America's Cup Sailing Race in 2013
