  1. Interesting Toy

    And the base is a cloud!
  2. Love photos of the Fair at dusk...!
  3. Does anyone remember Parana Coffee?

    This is what I found on a Google search: https://www.caffeparana.it/homeen/
  4. Everyone ready for a ride on the IBM People Wall?

    If you close your eyes you can just imagine it...
  5. Yes; the most beautiful time of the day or night. Funny, I don't remember the white lights on the columns of the NYS pavilion...
  6. A different view while approaching the Fair

    It's like x-raying a painting and discovering wonders underneath!
  7. Lighting at the Fair

    I think "total waste of money" is a bit harsh. The Luminaries were unique to the Fair and marked it (to me) as a special place. They also contained speakers for background music. I would agree that the wayfaring aspect of the color coding was a total waste, but the luminaries will always scream "1964-65 New York World's Fair" to me.
  8. Bring back the fountains!

    There actually is a funded plan for these fountains: https://www.amny.com/news/worlds-fair-fountains-queens-1.16726028
  9. The France pavilion in 1975

    It does look like a gas station sign!
  10. IMAGES ON EXPO 67 SOUNDS

    This is a wonderful project! I'm looking forward to see it grow.
  11. TWA Rocket to the Moon

    Don't forget the moving sidewalk, also in Satellite City.
  12. The Probability Machine at IBM

    The Probability Machine was recreated for the Disney film Tomorrowland.
  13. Need Help From Former and Current PTU Members

    Even though I rarely post, I check in and read new postings almost every day.
  14. Carousel of Progress poster

    I've always LOVED this exuberant style! The sky and the street look like exploding fireworks!
  15. One to write home about?

    You've brought this photo back to life! It could have been taken yesterday...
  16. The first part of the Carousel of Progress

    If only we had iPhones back then! Thankfully, there are videos/films of many of the attractions (or the films themselves that were shown in them); there might yet be a video of the Carousel that includes the opening Kaleidoscope screen.
  17. 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."
  18. 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.
  19. "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.
  20. Good jobs

    Thanks for the answer, Randy!
  21. Good jobs

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

    I'm also impressed with the color, which seems very realistic. Bill: did you fix this in PhotoShop?
  23. It looks like a part of the Challenge to Greatness ride at the United States pavilion.
  24. 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
