520 1  "For those who experienced it, the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific 
       Exposition was a grand world's fair that transformed the 
       summer of 1909 in Seattle into a whirl of excitement and 
       pleasure. For a brief moment a huge city emerged on the 
       new University of Washington campus. At noon on June 1, 
       amid the blasting of horns and whistles, confetti filled 
       the air and the gates were opened to a pent-up crowd of 
       about 80,000 fairgoers. When the A-Y-P ended on October 16,
       its 3.7 million visitors had thronged to the fair, and its
       sponsors and had achieved their goal of annoucing to the 
       test of the nation that Seattle was an important city with
       vital trade links to Alaska and the Pacific Rim." "For 
       those who couldn't make the trip to see the exhibits and 
       for the rest of us today, the best record of the event was
       made by Frank H. Nowell, official photographer for the 
       exposition. Using a large view camera and 8" x 10" glass-
       plate negatives, Nowell documented the construction of the
       city, its landdscaping, the people who built it, and the 
       people who visited it, as well as the buildings, displays,
       and special events. Nicolette Bromberg has chosen the best
       and most representative of Nowell's A-Y-P photographs and 
       has also included a sample of his Alaska photographs taken
       during the Gold Rush. In her extended accompaning essay, 
       she provides a biographical sketch of Nowell." "To 
       commemorate the 100th anniversary of the exposition, John 
       Stamets led architecture students in a rephotographic 
       project. For this book, he has chosen thirty of Nowell's A
       -Y-P photographs and paired them with new photographs of 
       the same sites, providing a fascinating then-and-now look 
       at the University of Washington campus."--BOOK JACKET.
