  1. The book is nearing the finish line!

    It looks great, Bill! (I couldn't find the errant comma.) Will the photographs only be in B/W? One suggestion: I think "...and plenty of the innovative architecture" would read better without the "the."
  2. Here's the URL: https://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/1100267/terre-hommes-exposition-ile-sainte-helene-expo-67-archives Google Translate in the Chrome browser (or at its own website) renders the French text into fairly understandable English.
  3. "The Bugaboo of Bugville"

    From the cursory description in this article from Business Screen magazine, it seems that it was a stop-motion film in Technicolor.
  4. Good jobs

    Thanks for the answer, Randy!
  5. Good jobs

    Were other pavilions at the 1939 Fair air-conditioned? (Thinking of the Futurama ride in the dead of summer...)
  6. Inside the New York State Pavilion

    I'm also impressed with the color, which seems very realistic. Bill: did you fix this in PhotoShop?
  7. It looks like a part of the Challenge to Greatness ride at the United States pavilion.
  8. Why aren't we riding these in our cities today?

    The monorails at the Fair operated at 9 MPH, although the SAFEGE design was capable of speeds up to 90 MPH. http://www.nywf64.com/amf07.shtml
  9. Italia '61

    I find that Google Translate makes the Italia 61site comprehensible to this non-Italian speaker... Interestingly, the text itself uses the Circarama name for the Disney film process, but the description makes it clear that the film was actually presented in Circlevision, Disney's improved successor format. (Basically, Circarvision used eleven 16mm projectors, while Circlevision used nine 35mm projectors and delivered a superior image. https://d23.com/a-to-z/circarama-u-s-a/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle-Vision_360°
  10. EPCOT displayed various robotic arms in its early years. http://www.lostepcot.com/communicorepictures.html#expo
  11. A peek inside the New York City Pavilion

    Look how timeless that style is... yet it's 80 years old.

    Same from me, Bill. And thanks for the constant stream of new pictures of our favorite Fair!
  13. I can only imagine what a visitor to the 1893 fair felt upon seeing it for the first time. Hopefully, just as thunderstruck as this 12-year-old boy was on April 25, 1964, when he first set foot on the NYWF.
  14. Argentina for Expo 2023

    I visited Łódź once (my mom was born there) and was hoping that they would get the Fair; it would have had an amazing effect on that frequently overlooked city. Then again, I've always wanted to visit Buenos Aires...
  15. One fine night in 1965

    Can't get enough of those ethereal night-time views; thanks!
