  1. Recorded at the RCA Pavilion

    Thanks. Peter Goldmark, CBS's archrival to RCA in the color TV race and 33 1/3 LP inventor (vs. RCA 45's), had a dog of the same breed, and liked to show a snapshot and say that he "owned the RCA dog." So maybe that destructive animal is a ringer?
  2. Thanks - very nice All the photos in those links that include people (and others I find on line) seem to be of events filled with dignitaries and few or none with regular fair goers. Wiki says the attendance was 3 million. Does anyone know the actual situation due to the war?
  3. Spruce it up with paint - and haul out that trash!

    The monorail is in Wuppertal, Germany.
  5. I wonder if there's a form somewhere for ordering more forms?
  6. Well, I see this building permit topic got sidetracked into fax technology, so to get back to the original subject here are some permit forms for various work you may need on your pavilion. Note that you need to use the form printed by the union shop, and fill it out using a typewriter in either quadruplicate or quintuplicate, depending on the type of work. Be sure to attach architect's or professional engineer's drawings in quintuplicate also. ... By the way, I recently read that FAX is still alive for doctor's offices, as their computerized medical record systems do not all talk to each other yet.

  10. I just noticed that "Paris on Parade" is on YouTube:
  11. Can we identify the pavilion?
  12. CNN ran "Linda Ronstadt - the Sound of My Voice" on new year's day.I just finished watching it from the DVR and I'd say it rates 5 stars.It will repeat tomorrow, Jan 4, 2020 at 9:00 pm ET and PT on CNN.http://cnnpressroom.blogs.cnn.com/20...new-years-day/ At one point it mentions that she met Aaron Neville while in New Orleans for the World's Fair.
