Description: Historic black and white photos and film show great detail of how Balboa Park was constructed and how the 1915 Expo was planned. While there are thousands of photos from the era that depict the exterior buildings there are few, rare photos that show the inside. We'll also show you emphemra that tells us the ingenious and successful marketing strategies used to attract visitors from the East Coast to San Diego. And you'll want to see how the Piccirilli Brothers from New York would create spectacular ornamentation for various park buildings.
