    1964-65 New York Worlds Fair
  1. Flushing Meadows 1972 #1

    w. It is sad to see those views from 45 years ago. They remind me of my first visit back to the fairgrounds in early 1976. Things were even more run down. There were several missing panels on the US pavilion. The roof was gone from New York State, the park looked very neglected. Not to mention very empty of people. I am very glad that when you visit today the park is alive with people, at least on the weekends when I have visited. And that the various buildings left from the fair have had some very long overdue TLC. Of course they could always use more. I have to find those pictures from that trip in 76, I have posted them before, but that was years ago.
  2. 50th Anniversary of Demolition!

    I was away at a wedding in Maryland this past weekend and I wondered if something was going on at the park. Thanks to Johnny and the rest of the guys for marking the day, I wished I could have been there with you. Steve
  3. Rare look at Santa Maria

    Randy, The Slide is dated Jul 64. Steve
  4. Last Day Oct.17,1965

    We have all heard and seen pictures of the huge crowd that attended the fair the last day. Well here are three fine examples showing the over 450,000 people who showed up that last Sunday. These are from the files of John Pender. I have gotten some great one of a kind items from this collection over the years but I've got to admit, since I love pictures, these are among my favorites. There were 10 slides in this group and I will share the rest.
  5. I just had some slides that I've has for over a year scanned today and I thought I would share some with you. That first is a rare picture taken aboard the Santa Maria. When I saw this group of slides on ebay this was the picture that made me want to get them. I had no pictures of this attraction till I got these.
