  1. The "other" First National City Bank

    Bill, Where was this building located?
  2. The Fair that might have been

    This space was rented out. The french pavilion was to have been built here. Ground was broken, but construction did not get far as funds ran out. There is a ground breaking booklet that shows the three structures that were to be built. Two looking a little like a Trylon and Persisphere look alike. Images were included in the world's fair puzzle and corporation flyers that showed the drawn aerial views of the fair from over the Bell System pavilion.
  3. Let there be light (towers)!

    I really love this photo. What an interesting point of view. You got New Jersey, A Brass Rail and of course a close up view of the light tower . Very cool.
  4. A different angle on the Atomedic Hospital

    This photo reminds me of the Jupiter II from lost in Space. Almost expect to see Will Robinson come out the door.
  5. One of my favorite pavilions

    I cannot imagine any building that had the impact that the Bell System pavilion had at the fair. It was the perfect design that totally dominates the Pool of Industry. With the Unisphere at one end and the Bell System at the other end of the fairs main street. They were fitting bookends.

    Bill, Happy birthday I hope this one is the best one yet.
  7. Anyone hungry? These folks were!

    Yes Bill, I was wondering that myself when I was lookg at these pctures. I was not even in kindergarten when I went to the fair and I just turned 61.
  8. Anyone hungry? These folks were!

    They all look so young, they are all grandparents now. How time flies.
  9. Pool of Industry

    That's a lot of water up in the air at one time. Its a shame they did not keep this after the fair closed.
  10. Another post-Fair view from April 1968

    I think what the photographer is doing is taking a picture with the space park in the back round. The Saturn 5 is most likely right behind her.
  11. Building Shea Stadium

    I have to admit this makes me a little sad. This picture reminds me of the shots taken as the stadium was coming down. I miss Shea. Quite a few important moment in my life took place here.
  12. I am going to try Coca Cola pavilion
  13. I don't think they just came from church. People just used to dress more formally when they would go out to something like a trip to the World's Fair. It was a big deal. And you got dressed for special events.
  14. Bill just ordered the aerial calendar. Can't wait till it gets here.
  15. A different angle on the Tent of Tomorrow

    This is really cool. what great detail, you never get this close.
