The panorama of her hills rising from encircling blue waters, of the two huge bridges spanning the Bay, of the 1939 Exposition taking shape on the man-made island, is your introduction to the delightful things to see and to do that lie within the city itself...San Francisco invites you to share its pleasures and to visit the Golden Gate International Exposition and Pageant of the Pacific in 1939."
