Seattle Space Needle

My last blog post was a picture of the Space Needle being built, this picture shows the color the Space Needle was painted for the Seattle Worlds Fair.
On opening day President John Kennedy touched a famous gold telegraph key that activated a computer in Andover, Maine and relayed to Seattle where workmen cut a cord and released 2000 balloons to open the 1962 Seattle Worlds Fair.

A close up of the balloons that were set free to open the Seattle Worlds Fair.
Really looks tall when you are at the bottom looking up.

  1. I'll be driving by downtown tomorrow on the way to the airport. I can't wait to see the space needle back at it original color!
