  1. NBC Today at the World's Fair promo slide

    I wonder why Formica was so prominently displayed?
  2. What if you threw a party and nobody came?

    As Expo 2000 in Hannover came to a close, Time ran an article with exactly this headline.
  3. MadMen

    I agree. When I watched the series, I kept hoping for more mentions of the Fair.
  4. So many questions

    I wonder if it was a security check performed in anticipation of the visit by Prince Ranier and Princess Grace of Monaco?
  5. Well, it was better than the Maine Pavilion.
  6. Night at Expo '67

    Bill, these are all great. Are they amateur slides?
  7. Chairs from Festival of Gas

    Looks like they sold . . . for $17,500!
  8. Night at Expo '67

    Exceptional night view.
  9. The "Best" Takes a Little Longer

    When the said "the 'best'," they obviously weren't referring to this sign.
  10. Anyone hungry?

    Even though these prices seem cheap by today's standards, I'd say they were on the high side for 1964. I can remember ordering a cheeseburger, fries and Coke for about 45ยข at McDonalds in the mid-60s.
  11. I've also had problems posting items that were too large.
  12. Everything was so shiny and new! May 1964.

    Actually, Hannover had several landscaped areas that were unfortunately somewhat removed from the exhibition area. Also, they reflected then current tastes in landscape design, not the type of landscape that was popular in the 1960s. There were lots of drought tolerant plantings and various types of grasses.
  13. I'd love to see the renderings. Any chance you could post photos?
  14. Color Photos from 1939

    To my surprise, an editor from Atlantic contacted me by email after I pointed out the error in the comments section of the article and it was corrected.
