This photo was taken for the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition. “You’ll Like Tacoma” was the official slogan of Tacoma for decades following the exposition.

Thousands of postcards with this image were given out to attendees of the exposition in hopes of driving tourists to Tacoma. We found one of the original postcards and scanned it to make this high-res poster. If you’re curious about the history of the sign and where exactly it stood during the AYPE, we’ve got all the answers here.

The backside reads, “Dear [illegible name]: glad to receive your letter today. Was so sorry to know you were still in poor health. Will write you a good long letter very soon. Baby is well also her papa. Much love to all. [illegible name]

Print measures 24 x 36 inches. Poster will ship in protective cardboard tube. Frame kit not included.
