  1. Air Canada!

    Then there was the Maine Pavilion located behind Air Canada; an example of non-oddball architecture.
  2. Great video and interview, Christopher!!
  3. The Streets of Paris

    I think Sally Rand was at her "Nude Ranch" at the GGIE in San Francisco.
  4. Based on the vivid color rendition and the pop of the reds and oranges, I'm betting these were shot on good old reliable Kodachrome. I'm assuming the gazebo with the "We Wire Flowers" sign was the FTD exhibit. This is the first picture I've seen of the building.
  5. Never heard of this one. Thanks for the great information!
  6. Great shot! What I've always found odd about the Lunar and Solar Fountains is they ended up sort of hidden from the main pedestrian avenues, with pavilions backing up to them rather than facing them. This view shows the Spain and Hong Kong pavilions facing away from the fountain. Had the Fair Corporation exercised a little more control over design and placement, I think these pavilions would have been placed differently to take advantage of the fountains.
  7. The Bronx Worlds Fair of 1918???

    Not to mention the Spanish flu pandemic. I'd heard mention of plans for this exposition but never realized it was actually held.
  8. Rocket Thrower

    Great video. It plays without freezing for me also.
  9. NBC Today at the World's Fair promo slide

    I wonder why Formica was so prominently displayed?
  10. 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.
  11. MadMen

    I agree. When I watched the series, I kept hoping for more mentions of the Fair.
  12. 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?
  13. Well, it was better than the Maine Pavilion.
