The Palace of Fine Arts was build for Panama Pacific Exposition of 1915 was an event dedicated to progress, the celebration of the completion of the Panama Canal, and the rebirth of San Francisco following the disastrous 1906 earthquake.The Palace slowly crumbled from the ravages of the weather and ill-use. Finally, the structure had to be fenced off as it was a public hazard.Then, In the late 1950's, a group of dedicated citizens, initiated a drive to rescue the Palace from planned demolition and restore it to its former glory. On July 20, 1964, Photos were taken last summer.

I just watched a report today on CBS Sunday Morning about the earthquake and they mentioned this place. I was wondering what it looks like now and here you come. Thanks! :)
