ABOUT History In Motion: Century 21
In 1962, Seattle celebrated the past, present and, most of all, the future during the Century 21 Seattle World's Fair. In the years leading up to the event and during its six-month run, local and national media produced countless programs anticipating, highlighting and documenting what remains one of the most important eras in Seattle history. Unfortunately, many of these programs have been lost forever.
