A Differnt Piece of History

I was out taking photos today and stopped at a garage sale. This cool old card table caught my eye and I asked the owner if I could take a photo.

She thought it was New York, but I was pretty sure it was San Francisco, with the two bridges. I couldn't place the tower, though, definitely not Coit Tower. Couldn't be the Panama Pacific Exhibition because the bridges weren't built yet.

I searched a bit and this appears to be the Sun Tower at the Golden Gate International Exposition held on Treasure Island in 1939.
