Further Review: Expo ‘74

Forty-five years ago this week — June 5, 1974 — the first United Nations World Environment Day was observed right here in Spokane. Nearly all world’s fairs have had themes. The them for Expo ’74 was "Celebrating Tomorrow’s Fresh New Environment." That seemed mighty appropriate given the eyesore that became the fair site: a blighted area with two train depots and an unsightly tangle of railroad tracks.
