Treasure Island - Site of the 1939 World's Fair/Golden Gate International Exposition

When I got out of the Navy in 1991 I was temporarily assigned to Treasure Island and one day I was given a weed whacker and sent to chop weeds in a 'forest-like' area that I eventually found, after much weed whacking, to be the site of one of the large fountains from the fair! It was a bit dissapointing in that they let these treasures decay to such a level yet it was somewhat exciting as I felt like some kind of archaeological explorer that had just made some major discovery!
