  1. That is odd, considering that Disneyland built the Monsanto House of Plastic almost a decade prior.
  2. The Medo Camera Shop and Kodak Pavilion, August 1964

    "In a few decades I'll make a fortune on eBay! A fortune, I tell ya!" "What's eBay?" "Never mind, I'm, uh, sending these to grandma."
  3. A nice home movie from the Fair

    If you view the video on youtube directly, you can adjust the speed with the gear icon at the bottom of the video. 0.75 is a bit slow, but a little better than full speed. icedstitch - it's unlikely to find anything other than corporate PR films with sound, but you can get the orchestra's audio on the "Walt Disney and the 1964 World's Fair" box set. Does anyone know where the lady at 9:05 is dining outdoors? I can't think of many places that advertised rooftop dining?
  4. Guess where I am

    Though you can see a Moon Dome at the Armstrong Air & Space Museum in Wapakoneta, Ohio

    Very good. They let us take pictures inside the Golden Rondelle, but not the SCJ Admin and Research Buildings and Fortaleza Hall. Sadly, To Be Alive! is not showing now, as they're replacing the projectors. I saw Carnauba, about Sam Johnson's recreation of his fathers 1935 trip to Brazil. Incidentally, I also stopped in Columbus to visit COSI on the way out here. They mention Triumph of Man in the history of COSI exhibit, and have some Century 21 memoribilia and a character that looks suspiciously like Reddy Kilowatt in the Progress exhibit.

    Hint: I'm not in FMCP
  7. The Streets of Paris

    Gypsy Rose Lee was popular enough that they made reference to it in the Parrot and Toucan show at Progressland
  8. Is the hostess in the back demonstrating how not to ride? https://youtu.be/ZFRu9D1abLQ?t=48s
  9. I'm sure it's not coincidental that Mickey is riding in a Ford convertible
  10. They were issued on 2 non-consecutive days :-)
  11. NY traffic. Always an issue.

    Those cars have a nice level of detail. They look far more like something from Disneyland than a local carnival.
  12. I wonder if the Bluenose in the Canada film at Epcot is actually this Bluenose II
  13. Entrance drawings

    I'll toss in $50 if I can get a nice set of scans of them, and the originals wind up in a library or musum
  14. Long time lurker
