  1. Anyone thirsty?

    I don't think so, because later they moved the ices concession to the other end of the counter, but the big machine didn't come with it.
  2. Anyone thirsty?

    I thought one of you guys would have the machine manufacturer nailed down by now. :D
  3. A May 1965 view of a kitchen display

  4. Anyone thirsty?

    It looks like it has a big plexiglass "bubble top", like they put over hot dog rollers to keep the bugs from feasting.
  5. Anyone thirsty?

    It looks like a hot dog griller with rollers, to me. What's stranger is, Coke in the middle, Pepsi on the right. It also makes me wonder if the Gold Coca-Cola cups, which we always assumed came from the Coca Cola Pavilion, actually were used throughout the Fairgrounds. Would have to zoom in on the cup on the table and see if it matches the markings on the well-known World's Fair Coca-Cola cups.
  6. A definite "Oh crap" moment

    This is very difficult to read on my little smartphone screen, but it appears the construction company who built infrastructure for the Log Flume, Orange Julius and several other in that area of the Amusement Zone, filed suit against them for non payment, and then filed a "mechanics lien" to foreclose and take them over, and it went all the way to the New York Supreme Court. Maybe one of you legal eagles with better eyes than me can make more sense out of it, and tell us what the Supreme Court decided. https://books.google.com/books/about/New_York_Supreme_Court_Appellate_Divisio.html?id=qoUekpHmehcC

    Bill's photo from Century 21 in Seattle (1962).
  8. A definite "Oh crap" moment

    Check out the third bullet down. My first thought was maybe the backward S was intentional- a whimsical marketing thing. But then I see it doesn't match the other sign just a few feet away.
  9. Gary, did you know that the skylight was manufactured by Super Sky Products in Wisconsin (they did the skylights at the Wisconsin Pavilion and the House of Good Taste too). ...AND.... the company still exists and is interested in helping with renovations! http://www.supersky.com/Category/Repair-Renovation?fbclid=IwAR1Z6TaTtfm1xsGc6qt7kyZsWucZkWtmcitM3yPnSD0dBwUSUcYsoFcKu1A
  10. Old TVs

    I don't know. None of them were operating when I was there.
  11. Old TVs

    Wayne, this is for you. Today I was at the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village, and they had quite a collection of early TV's.
  12. Carousels

    Today I visited the Herschel Carrousel Factory Museum in North Tonawanda, NY, and discovered datasheets in their extensive archives regarding the two carousels at the '64-65 (one of which we knew continued on in Montreal). Current disposition on both was already known, but there is a lot of other information on these datasheets as well.
  13. Magazine of the Day

    It's still there. http://randytreadway.com/Models.pdf
  14. Live From the World's Fair City - Here's Johnny!!

    We have nice color photos of Skitch visiting the restaurant at the New England Pavilion, and signing their guest book.
  15. Progressland model up for auction

    Interesting note that only 14 of these were made. Somewhere online there is video of the lights in action on one of these. That one was in auction 10 or 15 years ago and if I recall right went for something between $5k and $8k. But my memory is questionable these days because of the pain meds I'm on.
