  1. Hi All, A few new slides - bought about 60 recently.
  2. A few new slides.

    Another new - thses are razor sharp but all I have is sellers photos. Enjoy! E
  3. Hi All, Well, I have never seen this before. It will transport you. I nearly dropped it when I realized what it was. It is a candid semi-pro 8"x10", matte and doubleweight. It shows the view from INSIDE the Trylon looking out to the Helicline. The image on the left in the composite below is from Bill Cotters collection and book - and I hope he does not mind my using it here. The image on the right is my new discovery. Look at the blue arrows - they say it all (the Helicine and Ford facing us does not hurt but I needed proof, not circumstantial evidence of location). ENJOY this rare view! It gives an idea what that moment must have been like - looking out over the Fair after passing through the Trylon..... Bill's photo and mine - the view looking out to the Helicline from inside the Trylon, Summer 1939 NYWF © EKL Images Best wishes, Eric
  4. This is just a small sample made from the sellers photo - it promises to be stunning in hand. The base of the Perisphere has just gone down, and the Trylon is going up.
  5. Swift Pavilion Ad

    Here is a B/W from an unusual vantage - huge scan:
  6. Swift Pavilion Ad

    This was taken from under one of the Swift "wings" of the Hall of Industrial Science which was just across the way - it is an original 8" x 10" transparency:

    There was a question about this building being designed to resemble a hot dog. It was designed to resemble an airliner. I believe it is in the Guidebook. This has come up here before.
  8. Remembering Tomorrow - a free Zoom presentation

    Will this be uploaded soon? E
  9. A few new slides.

    Hi Jim, Thanks for the nice words. I also love the Clotho image. The Freedoms - yes, a special image. I have seen things like it, some by the same photographer, but this one had the most going on by far. The spots are part of the Westinghouse Canopy of Light over Lagoon. There were at least 3. I can't wait to get these in hand.
  10. A few new slides.

    These are but a few - (4 Freedoms again for Jim)I think I bought way more than 60 - I really don't know. Many superb shots to come including very comprehensive Russia: exteriors both night and day, details of sculptures, interiors, and the Russian Arctic plane on display in the lesser known secondary Russian exhibit. Glass interiors, Sun Valley at night, Aquacade at night, a worthwhile fireworks shot, Gas night and day, Heinz, and much more I can't remember...additional Westinghouse exteriors showing the various color combinations and one at the golden hour (Trey)...more. More still. I think it was a good batch from 3 sources.
  11. A few new slides.

    An information booth (my second)...Johnny Lynch and his Daredevils at Goodrich (3 total), Clotho ending someones life with her shears (detail of the Great Sundial), and the Four Freedoms with the nightly fireworks display behind in a rather dramatic shot Again, sellers photos, not scans..
  12. A few new slides.

    This is identifiable as 1939 because the Medicine and Public Health building does not have the added entrance under the mural. And, there does not appear to be an information booth center of the Great Compass. Information booth - segue...

    Excellent presentation Bill & Albert! Thank you
  14. A few new slides.

    And another - Theme Center 1939 with the speakers for the "voice of the Perisphere" visible (sellers photo):
  15. A few new slides.

    Pepsi-COLA in 1939
  16. Nope, I am just forgetful :/
  17. A detail from new acquisition. January 4th, 1939. This is a but a crop - the whole image shows the entire Fair - literally all - all parking lots, both lakes, all Governments, even the Marina and air/sea arrival area. I once sold an original print of this - but that was actually a crop and I did not know it! This is a slightly smaller print, but the whole image uncropped and likely a contact print. Full size here - click and enjoy
  18. Happy New Year! T&P RARE

    Thanks all Glad you liked them.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. Yes, they do Jim. I have been looking for a view like this for over a decade.
  22. Hi All, a new slide from a small batch. This view is new to me
  23. Thanks I love it - not a common view.
  24. Hi All, A rather scarce view in color looking back on the Helicline at the Perisphere and Observation Bridge.
