  6. Expo 67 Zoom chat Saturday 5/23

    Even though I attended both Fairs (64 and 67), there were some nuggets in the video I hadn't heard before.

    Vent-Air was in the BLC, 2nd floor mezzanine, space 24.

    "Only contact lens at the NYWF" - wonder where that was? https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-York-Worlds-Fair-1964-1964-65-Vent-Air-Contact-Lenses-Ad-Eyeglasses-Chamois/202900093428?hash=item2f3dc9b9f4:g:HbYAAOSws25ePan3

  13. Now that’s a photographic gem. So much of the fair’s architectural geometry is evident. If only the planners had given more thought to permanence when the buildings began to rise.

    And elsewhere you could buy special cigarette packs in WF colors.
  15. The Fair From the Air

    No, there's a building with what looks like a striped roof in some other photos that can be seen here just between the road and the Press Building. So far it has eluded us as to what it was. May not even be a building - possibly a tent for a major press event?
  16. This is just a small sample made from the sellers photo - it promises to be stunning in hand. The base of the Perisphere has just gone down, and the Trylon is going up.
  17. Expo 67 Zoom chat Saturday 5/23

    I've been doing free Zoom chats each Saturday at 10 AM Pacific time on world's fairs and expos. This Saturday, 5/23, will feature Expo 67. I'll post the details here and on my site the day before. If you have any favorite Expo 67 pavilions or shows please let me know and I will try to include them! https://www.worldsfairphotos.com/zoom/index.htm
  18. The Fair From the Air

    Isn`t that the press Building?
  19. The Fair From the Air

    This thread makes me feel that while we do know how the fair was built and what was done from all the documents.... It feels like we do a decent amount of reverse engineering on the fair too. I love it.

    That's fantastic.

  22. The Fair From the Air

    Someday! we will find out more on that one. Someday!
  23. Remembering Tomorrow - a free Zoom presentation

    You bet! I was an angel at school, of course, but saw what they did to the others. Actually, a true story. I went to a Catholic elementary school for a time and it was over-crowded so they went to split hours. I went in the morning, and my brother Jim, who was a grade behind, went in the afternoon. One day I was home watching cartoons or something when Jim came in the door and stared pounding me on the head yelling "I'm not Billy Cotter!" over and over. Well, when the fighting stopped, we finally got an explanation. He had been in class and the nun asked him a question and he didn't know the answer, so she said "Your brother Billy knew it last year." That apparently happened 3-4 times and Jim blurted out "Well I'm not Billy Cotter!" Out came the ruler. Poor Jim was not in a good mood when he got home.

    One of my favorite Swift shots.

    Oh sure - I bet it really was because you were afraid of being overheard by an ever-present nun.

    Here is a B/W from an unusual vantage - huge scan:

    This was taken from under one of the Swift "wings" of the Hall of Industrial Science which was just across the way - it is an original 8" x 10" transparency:
