The 1939 NYWF has been an interest of mine since the 1980's. I have been collecting for about as long - memorabilia, yes, but really images. In addition to research and some writing, I collect/buy/sell unpublished 1939/40 NYWF 35mm Kodachrome color slides, original b/w photographs & related memorabilia.
I also buy/sell original photographs, photo-cards, glass slides, glass negatives, postcards/on board mail, passenger diaries, memorabilia & scrap relics from the Cunard liner Mauretania of 1906-1936. I also serve to authenticate the odd liner item.
I buy /sell vintage Golden Hollywood autographs & photographs.Now also some Rock and Roll. I provide authentication opinions for a modest fee and serve to locate items. In addition - I am now actively collecting roof tiles, ceramics and other artifacts such as window glass, original photographs, color slides, survivor autographs and other items connected to the A-bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 - some of which has just come back from testing rich with isotopes from that specific event.
Thanks for reading!!!
