Google is today celebrating the 160th anniversary of the World’s Fair Exposition with an interactive doodle. It is so nice to start a month with a new logo on the search engine giant’s home page. This is much better than the one from the other day of John James Audubon, but the Royal Wedding one was very nice – even if it was just an image.
Looking into detail at the doodle, when you hover over it, it is as if you are in control of a magnify glass. This allows you to see so much more than looking at it just is, such as the person on the bottom left hand side taking a photo of the fair and its customers.
That is not all, we have also noticed a few things moving in the doodle, such as steam and music coming from a train, flowing water fountain, working clock, and a lady dancing. We have tried to locate more, but this was all that we could see.
The World’s Fair Exposition or Expo for short has now been running since 1851 and was held in Hyde Park in London, United Kingdom. It was a different name back then, but did not take long for other countries to do the same, only after coming up with the name that we know today.
Is this the best Google Doodle to date, how would you rank it?
