Expo 86 Passport

In August 1986 my father took his Boy Scout troupe to the World's Fair in Vancouver, British Columbia. I was seven years old; I was not allowed to come and was never given a satisfactory reason why not. Looking at my father's postcards from the trip sheds no light on the topic.

Anyway, that's neither here nor there. The point is that my dad came back from the World's Fair with this "passport" stamped by pavilions from all over the world: the USSR, Indonesia, Senegal, Yugoslavia, Japan, Washington State, IBM, and many more. Check out the classic 1980s stamp design and a lot of countries that aren't around anymore.
