  1. Charles & Ray Eames Exhibits at IBM

    What exactly did the Probability Machine do? Besides looking like it was picking the Powerball numbers.
  2. I'm still waiting for underwater hotels

    Not quite like the Futurama but in the Maldives...
  3. Lighting at the Fair

    This may be off topic a bit but, was the nuclear fusion demonstration real? Or was it just theatrics? This was Disney after all.
  4. USA Pavilion construction

    How does this one compare in size to Spaceship Earth at Epcot?
  5. Poland - 1968

    What are the objects in the foreground under the clear domes? Lighting?
  6. The wait is almost over!

    Sound the brass, roll the drum!
  7. Two young NY actors having the time of their lives, although it had to get a little monotonous with how many shows they did a day. She looks a little like Maryanne from Gilligan's Island.
  8. Looks like a nice night for the fireworks

    Precursor to Epocts's "Illuminations". Of course the whole fair was a precursor to Epcot.
  9. High over the Fair

    I guess that was taken by a drone.
  10. I went to the fair in '65 when I was six years old. I have vague memories of the Autofair. In this horribly damaged slide that's me on the left with my mother and my brother in front of a vehicle I believe was part of the Chrysler area.
  11. The Probability Machine at IBM

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

    And if the tire gone wasn't bad enough, eventually they only used half the gondolas...
  14. Two NYWF64 survivors

    Rode the ferris wheel sans tire on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City in either the late 60's or early 70s.
  15. 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.
