Remember Expo?

June 21 | 2021

Lots of talk these days about vaccine passports. In 1967, the sought-after passport was the one for Expo, the universal exposition held in Montreal. As I tell in my recent memoir, the theme of Expo 67 was “Man and His World,” hardly an obvious draw for a small girl obsessed with pigtails and Liddle Kiddles dolls. But I adored the world’s fair! I was six years old and travelling the globe—from Barbados to Mexico to Uganda. Illustrated here are some of the “visa” stamps from my child’s passport. Does anyone else remember Expo?
