FEAST OF FRIENDS:



Seattle Monorail

Info:

Prior to The Doors performance at the Seattle Center Arena on July 12th, 1968, Paul Ferrara captures The Doors on film while boarding a monorail built for the 1962 World's Fair exhibit. While on board, Jim Morrison reads a copy of Helix magazine featuring an advertisement for The Doors concert on the backside. In a sarcastic tone, Jim mocks page 6 of the magazine which quotes Hermann Goering of the Nazi's with "Why of course the people don't want war."

As well as the monorail, The Doors visit Seattle's Space Needle, also built in 1962 for the World's Fair.
