Description: Title from recto. | 1 postcard, untraveled, with a color illustration of the official emblem of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition from the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, Seattle 1909. | "Copyrighted 1908, A.Y.P. E. Co."--recto. | The A-Y-P Exposition’s official seal was an art nouveau variation on a classical tableau: the three graces. Seattle’s graces, seated before the backdrop of the harbor, represent the directions of her ambition: East, West, and North; the blonde-haired grace in the center holds yellow flowers? in her hands, while the others hold models of the transportation means of achieving Seattle's trade ambitions: steamships to Asia and locomotives to the East. | English.
