Yesterday, my friends took me to a holiday pops performance of the Spokane Symphony in a driving snowstorm. This shot taken from the INB Performing Arts Center during intermission shows the old clock tower in Riverfront Park. "Many of the structures built for the 1974 World's Fair are still standing and in use. The Expo site itself became the 100-acre (0.40 km2) Riverfront Park, containing, among other features, the U.S. Pavilion, the turn-of-the-20th-century (and meticulously preserved) Looff Carousel, and the Great Northern Railway clock tower, the last remnant of the vast rail depot that was demolished for Expo '74. The U.S. Pavilion and the clock tower are prominently featured in the park's logo." Wikipedia
