  1. Hi Wayne, It's that I don't have it my hands yet. Thanks - I am glad you liked the images Eric
  2. Hi All, Another new view - three of The Four Elements by Carl Jennewein. 1940 35mm Kodachrome. Sixty-five feet each with golden plaques representative of the elements. This may be backwards (Cone Ed should be back there) - I have not decided. I don't think so looking at the various buttons.
  3. Hi All, The view up the Power Zone. Enjoy
  4. Hi All, another image - this of the Dance of the Races at night. It is after 10 pm as the Helicline is closed down. Lovely colors. Probably closing day 1940 from some other slides showing denuded trees and "I Was There Closing Day" pennants. Enjoy
  5. Hi All, a new slide from a small batch. This view is new to me

    Happy Birthday Bill!!! I took the photo below a while back - I think it is among my best - I hope you enjoy it!
  7. Pool of Industry

    In 1940 the morning after the Fair closed the Lagoon was already drained to mud while the flag was still flying high on the Trylon.
  8. Think you know your dwarfs?

    And there was the asthmatic one, Wheezy...no?
  9. A touch late... The Parachute Jump was way, way off to the right in 1939. Probably half constructed at this point. The Westinghouse Tower in 1939 was a very thin vertical illuminated structure as seen below. In 1940 it has a much wider base seen on the postcards with a thinner top and "sang". Both years it was 150 feet tall. The display of the Time Capsule contents were located directly behind this structure, as was the Immortal Well itself.
  10. Happy New Year! T&P RARE

    And from earlier this year...from the Trylon near the top/tip...
  11. Hi All, Best wishes for the New Year! 2020!!! Something new - two unique photographs I thought you might like...These might be among my most favorite - there are also some taken from the Helicline looking out over the lake by Amusements - all hand labelled with each building from Florida to the other side west.

  13. Indeed. There is some footage of Moses saying you could fit the '39 fair in a '64 parking lot - I don't think so. 1939 was much bigger at 1,600 acres compared to just 664.... In the image Bill showed, you can still make out the Budd display from 1939. Wish the b/w photo was higher resolution. What was the tallest thing at 1964? Anything coming in at 150" or so as in 1939? Eric
  14. Lovely Bill, and with the graceful end on the Helicline. This is 1939 - in 1949 there was another sign telling people not to UP the Helicline LOL. Also no Information or Greyhound booth in the middle of the Great Compass.
  15. Can anyone ID this fountain?

    That appears Gardens on Parade ? Aerials of good DPI will find those pools - the creature might also be a clue - or not.
