  1. Nightmare at 20 feet?

    If we hide up here, mom and dad can't find us and we can stay longer.
  2. The length of time since the poster's post last week, the poster hasn't posted again. Is it possible we've been trolled? What's too long for a reply? Like you get about a year maybe to watch the latest movies, does one apply for posts? I ask because I am excited about the subject, just disappointed in the lack of a reply after all our excitement.
  3. Same here, speedwell. It's practically the same path, minus this show, that led me here.
  4. Sir Vival car brochure - which fair?

    Yea, I wanna call shenanigans on this. The guy created the prototype ~6 years prior to the opening of the fair. I'm betting the brochure was made, and ended up not going because the inventor was out of money. Wiki entry
  5. I didn't see the date, because the picture is beautiful. Saw the flower arrangement and felt it should be Fall, even though the tree's leaves weren't colorful yet. Then I noticed you wrote October :-D. Testament unto itself.
  6. Even with search, it's hard to know that how this topic ended up. Titles can be misleading. I too, enjoy these conversations.
  7. The Fountain of the Planets. June 1964.

    Stole the words or of my mouth. I stopped to do further research, and came back to see your reply. I remember National Geographic doing a large article on his work a few years back. It was weird to learn he created cemeteries as elaborate parks for people in the 1800's. I figured he played a role in a couple large projects in the US, and had to include world fairs too.
  8. What ever became of most of these films? YouTube is an excellent medium to archive them these days. They're not sitting in some basement are they? (Note: I am not expecting 360 to be easily converted to a small screen. It's just that even some kind of fractional export can happen)

    Definitely not the film processing time stamp. :grins:
  10. A peek at the Caribbean Pavilion

    The purple hat in the lower left, she looks like she was dressed for a cool and windy day. Never seen a a design like that.
  11. A very different angle on a luminaire

    Those weren't fluorescent lights, were they?
  12. In the first pic, is it normally that cold in June? People are wearing pretty heavy jackets for early summer.
  13. It's Here

    I seem to remember Costco selling the new flat screen TVs at near that cost when they first came out. Time, innovation, and the free market, brought that cost down.

  15. An early 10-button pay phone

    My wife's aunt worked as that kind of operator for AT&T in the Wheeling, WV switchboard. Explained why Wheeling was a hub, the kinds of direct connections from there to Columbus, OH, Cleveland, OH, and Pittsburgh, PA. Gave stories about life before the rotary dial was introduced to American household. Then told me how the the day the new machines went online for the rotary dials, and where she was when it happened. She was able to retire in the late 80's as an operator.
