After 40 years, many of the salt shakers, postcards and photos of Expo ’74 have disappeared into assorted boxes of knick-knacks or the trash. But some of the items have survived as collectibles or family heirlooms, and they serve as tangible reminders of what it was like when Spokane hosted a world’s fair.
A special thanks to John Waite, Karen Mobley and Jen Forsyth for letting us photograph items they’ve collected. Look for more, as well as featured artists whose work was displayed at the fair, at the upcoming Chase Gallery show opening July 9.
