Albert Speer's Best building in SF?

The amusement park at the 1939 exposition was called Gayway. Attractions were thrill rides, freak shows and Sally Rand’s Nude Ranch, which had topless cowgirls wearing only boots, hats, scarves and strategically placed pistol holders." Everything, or possibly more than you wanted to know about Building 1 at Treasure Island. Which was supposed to have eventually become SFO. Plus we loved the irony of Admiral Nimitz commanding the Pacific Fleet during WWII from a replica of Berlin's Albert Speer-designed Templehof Airport. [BayCitizen]
