  1. CTC, Do you have the Google link from the first post still available, is it one of the newer links you provided?
  2. Having grown up in the Akron/Canton area and gone to college at Kent, I know the factories from Akron. Such great histories, companies, and people from there. I think I can imagine how your grandfather felt when he traveled to the fair to see this exhibit.
  3. For the Von Roll fans!

    Bill, The whole time I was wondering why you said Von Roll, thinking you were referring to the tv crew down below in some obscure reference I didn't know. The conversation that it stirred up didn't help either. The name caught my eye today on the cable car. Whoops, and how fun to learn what you meant!.
  4. Anyone hungry?

    I was curious about that. It's expensive to eat out constantly, and the world's fair was a trip and costs would add up FAST. So I looked. (I tried to find a good average salary but couldn't. So many variables. Let's guess ~$5,000($38,854.92 in today's money)? Correct me here anyone, I'll learn.) In 1965,~$.75 is $5.83 in today's money $.45 is $3.50. That said, $5 didn't seem too bad. Better than $15 for the same at any convention today. Still a bit pricey for the salary. http://www.in2013dollars.com/1965-dollars-in-2017?amount=0.45 http://www.in2013dollars.com/1965-dollars-in-2017?amount=0.75
  5. Lots going on in the Transportation Area

    Nun spotting!
  6. Go Go Greyhound

    Wayne, Never heard of that quote, and boy does that make sense. Seen it before years ago but was never able to put a finger on the explanation. Today, that kind of thought doesn't fly as well as it used to. Which makes me observe such a change in businesses today. It's enabled me to continue working where I'm at through tough business decisions.
  7. One of the exhibits on the NYSP mezzanine level

    Great shot of the mezzanine, this one makes me feel like it was hard to NOT touch the fire engine. It is so close to the outside railing and if it read crowded, and if I was really curious about it.... So tempting. I know I would gotten caught and my mom would have yelled at me.

    How was the food at the Rail?
  9. "Greetings from the Solar Fountain!"

    Looks like quite a frozen day, not sure if it's enjoy it. I'd make a beeline for every place that had heat.
  10. Coast Guard 1965

    Seeing this amazes me, it's a time capsule and I love it. Great article, alongside the news of the conflict in Vietnam.
  11. Fun view from the Bell System Pavilion

    I love that the restraint is nothing but a cable.

  13. Obit on Disney designer

    Yeah, I'm a BIG fan of this guy for years. WEDWay radio talked about him a lot. My memories of Disney stuff in my youth, was partly from stuff he's done. What a great guy.
  14. Looking out from the IBM People Wall. June 1964.

    I can just imagine the breezy warmth under this roof.
  15. Vatican Pavilion tickets

    They're back. Possibly from a botched auction? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-of-30-Old-1964-N-Y-Worlds-Fair-TICKETS-VATICAN-PAVILION-New-York/372138286194?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D49477%26meid%3D4e6110a590414b5fb85b4c923255f9a1%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D10%26sd%3D311786193348&_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850
