  1. I visited the fair in 1965 when I was six years old. Some of my most vivid earliest memories are of the fair, I distinctly remember IBM, Bell Tel, GM, US, GE, and of course Small World and eating at some restaurant in the Belgian Village. These pictures are pretty much burned into my brain as one of the most amazing places and times I've experienced. So I come here, like so many of us, to re-visit my past.
  2. Anyone one ever hear of this fair? http://www.boweryboyshistory.com/2016/09/the-bronx-worlds-fair-of-1918-the-failure-which-became-a-magical-park.html
  3. Is the guy on the right of the top picture holding some kind of remote control in his right hand? Did he accompany Tik Tok and steer it?
  4. Here is some more info from another WF site...http://www.nywf64.com/gm01.shtml
  5. Panorama Featured in WONDERSTRUCK

    I couldn't really tell from the trailer, is it appropriate for a 9-10 year old?
  6. Giant Tire builder?

    Yes I remember riding the wheel on Steel Pier in the 70's. And every other car was missing. Here is a picture of it intact on the pier 1968...
  7. Chrysler Lagoon, October 1965

    Did they change out the cars? If so, how often?

  11. I would think that the Burma Shave sign before "Known to you" probably ended with the word "canoe".

  13. Time Machine Test

    Wanted: Somebody to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. P.O. Box 91 Ocean View, WA 99393. You'll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before.
  14. Investors wanted

    Here's the question, would you want to go back and know you came form the future, or would you want to go back as if it were the first time and you had no knowledge of the future?
  15. A different angle on GE

    So how long a wait would that have been?
