  1. The Probability Machine at IBM

    Love to see a video of this presentation. Just to hear the guy's patter.
  2. So where is this taken from ?
  3. Two NYWF64 survivors

    And if the tire gone wasn't bad enough, eventually they only used half the gondolas...

    Rode the ferris wheel sans tire on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City in either the late 60's or early 70s.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. Here is some more info from another WF site...http://www.nywf64.com/gm01.shtml
  9. Panorama Featured in WONDERSTRUCK

    I couldn't really tell from the trailer, is it appropriate for a 9-10 year old?
  10. 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...
  11. Chrysler Lagoon, October 1965

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

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