October 21, 1962 marked the closing day of Century 21, the World's Fair set in Seattle. Unlike some other world's fairs of its era, Century 21 made a profit, and left behind a number of permanent structures such as the iconic Space Needle, the Pacific Science Center, the monorail, the opera house, and Key Arena, among other lasting changes to the infrastructure of the city. 10 million people had visited the fair.Shown here: Pin-back button #010 from the collection of Mr. Joe James, grandson of Ye Olde Curiosity Shop founder Joseph Edward Standley.
