  1. Dashner tape & Horowitz tape.

    Now I just need to get a hold of the Dasher tapes---- Any ideas??
  2. After reviewing hundreds of older posts----- This is pretty much a yes or no question----- Have the photos posted in older posts been permanently lost to history, or can they somehow be resurrected?
  3. For sale: https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-1964-Worlds-Fair-BELL-TELEPHONE-CHAIR-vintage-RETRO-Pavilion-Ride-NEW-YORK/113702530298?hash=item1a7932ecfa:g:fT0AAOSwlXpcn4L0 Seller says it's in good shape. I hate to think what bad shape is.
  4. Dashner tape & Horowitz tape.

    I'd also like to see some kind of a "soundtrack" with the photos. Putting it together (proper sound with proper exhibits) would be a monumental task.
  5. Thanks for you kind words, Glen. I discovered this forum around May of last year, so I was late to the party. For some reason, when I googled "New York World's Fair" (all through the years) the forums never came up. I only wish I had found it earlier. My curiosity about some of the former members began when I started reading the back posts, and some of those listed not only used to post every day, but sometimes multiple times in a day. So their interests would have been as great as, or greater than mime. So for them to "drop off" the forums kind of baffles me. I suppose one is entitled to switch interests, but I have trouble thinking they abandoned them. If anyone knows of the members listed are on Facebook, tell them to drop by, so as least I can cross them off the list. The only one I "found" was a duplicate--Ray Dasher was RayinPasa. Again, Glen, thanks for the kind words.
  6. Dashner tape & Horowitz tape.

    Having recently reviewed Bill Cotter's images on disc, I found one thing lacking--a sound track. If anyone is willing to copy or part with Ray Dasher's recordings, I would like to sync them up with the images which are on the discs. Ray
  7. Run, Larry, run. Now I know why he was knocking over dumpsters.
  8. No, and don't worry. As Curly Howard once said, "The statue of libertations has already run out."
  9. Night comes to the Fair

    Submitted for your approval: A bus driver, an ordinary employee of a bus company whos ordinary life is about to take a far left turn. You see, the fare he has just picked up has directed him across the bridge, to the Lake Amusements Area, then to the American Indian Pavilion, where he will purchase a ticket. A ticket that will take him directly to: The Twilight Zone.
  10. The Vault III CD-ROM

    If any of you (Bill, Larry) find anything from the vault, let me know if you wish to part with it (or copy). Thanks.
  11. Larry-- When people paid you for their fare, did they put the money in your hand, or did they just drop it in a "money box"? Just curious.
  12. "Mister, why are you carrying around a tape recorder?" One wonder what memories we don't remember, or have little recollection of but become relevant later on. I could very well have got off the bus at the Fair, and watched as my Dad paid Larry for the fare, asked some questions and shook his hand, thanking him. And being a Scout walking over to the Boy Scout exhibit, and shaking hands with Bill and telling him I'm from Massachusetts and maybe I'll see him at the Jamboree. One wonders.
  13. Anyone hungry?

    Does one really get hungry after knocking over dumpsters?
  14. An early 10-button pay phone

    It amazes me when I hear a historian on C-SPAN say that the most valued records to them (when doing research) are the personal letters written by the subject. Only then, are they allowed to get "close" to them. Today, as e-mails are being erased, what records are we leaving future generations? We are one giant server collapse away from losing thoughts and experiences of this time (30+ years) forever. Even if they are somehow saved to a "hard copy", who in future generations is going to wade through all the nonsense to get to the "real" history? (Side note: People are forgetting even the sounds of past generations. I can see someone in Hollywood asking, "What did a wall telephone sound like in the 1960's when it was ringing?" (Remember, no ring tones) Only as I watched the recent movie, "First Man", did I realize they got it wrong.)
  15. What pavilion? Johnny Carson show

    Ok, thanks. I misunderstood the question. Looking at that image, it sure looks like plates of food on a table. 7-up, maybe?
