  1. Don't know if this has already been posted, but here is a collection of 1939 WF matchbooks courtesy of James Lileks... http://www.lileks.com/match/museum/worldsfair/1.html

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

  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. A different angle on GE

    So how long a wait would that have been?
  8. This has probably been addressed before but, what was the coin-op box for?
  9. 1964 and there's already rust on the railing?
  10. Some of these people are going the wrong way!

    This is where the origin of the word EPCOT was created. Every Person Comes Out Tired.
  11. Looks like this might be after the fair? During de-construction?
  12. Anyone want to go for a ride? Or a cruise?

    They have a fleet of these now at Disneyworld that you can take a ride in... http://www.orlandosentinel.com/travel/attractions/the-daily-disney/os-story-amphicars-delight-guests-at-disney-springs-20150421-story.html
  13. Behold the mini Unisphere

    Looks like the orbit at about 10:00 is a bit askew.
  14. Another great shot from Shorpy.com. Caption reads: May 6, 1965. "World's Fair, Flushing, Long Island. Robert & Frances Vargo from Verplanck, N.Y., with Madame Grace Zia Chu, cooking Chinese Spare Ribs at Festival of Gas." Madame Grace, known as the "First Lady of Chopsticks," was a sort of Asian Julia Child who did her best to explain that authentic Chinese cuisine relied on fresh ingredients that did not come from a can. 4x5 inch Ektachrome transparency from the Shorpy Publicity Department archive.
