Past Post: A.Y.P.E. Alaska Monument
December 17th, 2008 @ 1:15 am by Cliffe | Sorted Past Post |
If you’re an Alaska Yukon Pacific Expo
nerd like me, you’ll find it exciting that some film footage has recently turned up.
Berger has the scoop
over at Crosscut.
The newsreel clips show men giving speeches, fairgoers on rides, crowds enjoying the show, etc.
Trust me, if there’s any justice then this will be a Youtube sensation
. We’re nearly at the 100 year mark celebrating the expo — below find a related postcard showing the Alaska Monument.
One last thing… I’m not only an A.Y.P.E. nerd but a computer
nerd in general.
I’m happy to say I’m up and running on my new 64-bit machine with 8 gigabytes of ram and 3 terabytes of storage (should hopefully
be enough for the VS.org digital archives).
