  1. Does anyone remember Parana Coffee?

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

    If you close your eyes you can just imagine it...
  3. 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...
  4. A different view while approaching the Fair

    It's like x-raying a painting and discovering wonders underneath!
  5. 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.
  6. Bring back the fountains!

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

    It does look like a gas station sign!

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

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

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

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

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

    You've brought this photo back to life! It could have been taken yesterday...
  14. 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.
