  1. Spruce it up with paint - and haul out that trash!

    Industrial Photography, May 1964 I reduced the file size as much as possible, because most of the articles are continued onto single columns on ad-heavy pages at the back. I decided not to crop them because it would delete the page numbers and make it really hard to follow the articles' flow. Still comes to 5.4 MB. Industrial Photography MAY64 small.pdf

    Amusement Business, May 30, 1964 Summarizes attractions , but laments the lameness of the NYWF amusement area, and says the large industrial exhibits provide no examples of affordable attractions that might be adapted to the regular amusement business. Amusement Business 30MAY64.pdf
  3. Reply from labguy (Richard Diehl): Here is my impressions of the video. This material was recorded on a quadruplex recorder and post edited. The entire sound track is done in a studio. I spotted Alan Arkin's voice immediately. The wife and boy sounded familiar too and turned out to be his actual wife and son. In fact, I think they were all together in the film, The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming. But, I digress. Placing the camera in the moving gondolas would not be too difficult with several crew members man handling the cable between the camera head and the control units. This is a beautiful example of the work done by on location video crews of the time period. Everything was moving slowly enough on the trams to pull this off without too much difficulty. The video recording gear would have been in Tele-Tape's mobile production van nearby. Tele-Tape productions was a 100% quadruplex production house. This video represents some of the highest quality field production work I have ever seen. Thanks for the link. That was awesome! Rich

  5. It turns out that AMPEX made some "portable" video tape recorders (less than 100 pounds) in the years prior to the fair that recorded by helical scan on the 2-inch tape made for the big transverse-scan quadruplex studio recorders. It's possible one of these was used for this video. I am emailing labguy, a collector of extinct video tape machines, to ask for his thoughts.

    "AMERICA'S ONLY MILLINERY MAGAZINE" "hats" May 1964/One Dollar Cover features the unisphere (without U.S. Steel copyright) and a hat said to reflect the architectural lines of the AMF monorail. I have included the contents page, two pages looking back to the 1939-1940 Fair, and the only other page that refers to a fair (64-65), in a hat for dining at the Top of the Fair. hats magazine.pdf
  8. World's Fair Show and Tell - May 30 - 10 AM Pacific

    It was great! And thanks to everyone for keeping an eye on the space launch so we didn't run over and miss it. Any plans to do it again? I'd sure enjoy it.
  9. World's Fair Show and Tell - May 30 - 10 AM Pacific

    Sounds like great fun. I have two things that should take less than 4 minutes in total. Also something that might take 5 minutes by itself, if we run out of stuff. (Ha! Wanna bet if that will happen?)

    Do you mean not at all, or just not under their own banner?

  13. Remembering Tomorrow - a free Zoom presentation

    Oh sure - I bet it really was because you were afraid of being overheard by an ever-present nun.
  14. Free talk tomorrow on Spain Pavilion from NYWF64

    Thanks for the heads-up. Have to make sure I'm up and out of the shower by 8:00 am local!
