  1. A smoggy day in May 1965

    Like the different view of the GM fa├žade curves
  2. For monorail lovers

    Still looks great in 1965, granted its May but still.
  3. I wish I could grow one of these

    nice shot, don't recall seeing many of these. Plus the wood construction of the pavilion looks beautiful.
  4. "Now arriving on Track 2..."

    What a great shot! Its all looks so shiny and new. Thanks Bill.
  5. more pics of painting of crown

    It looks fantastic. Like a dream to see it all clean and bright again,
  6. A lot going on back in June 1964

    Great document, thanks for posting.
  7. For the Freedomland fans

    I remember Satellite City from when I was a kid. My grandparents were early residents of Co-op city, in fact all the buildings were not complete when they moved in. I remember walking around the area with cousins of mine when visiting them. A few parts of Freedomland when still there. I vaguely remember the crooked house still standing off in the distance. Alas no pictures.
  8. The Hall of Science opens the GREAT Hall

    Man, these pictures do bring back memories. That's for posting.
  9. Anyone able to read 5.25 inch floppies?

    Hey Bill. Just saw this post today. I am going to check with a good friend of mine, he may have a solution for this. Give me a few days. Ed
  10. Armenian Folk Festival

    I have one or two of these. Being of Armenian decent, I was there that day with my family. As I recall they danced and performed outside the United States Pavilion.
  11. Hey Big Mike. You say the 64 fair is being recreated in Vancouver. Any details to share? That's unbelievable. Worth a trip perhaps.
  12. ANother option is Goodwill and Salvation Army Stores. I know that the one here by me in Fort Worth has had a couple go through in the past 6 months or so. Just a thought.
  13. Stella Artois pays homage to NYWF 64/65

    I saw this ad during "The Hatfields and McCoys" did a doubel take. I was like WHAT IS THIS! Wild seeing the Johnson Wax Pavillion and the clever imagery of the rest of the ad. How about those arches behind the women rolling out the bar, looks like the inside of the Ford Skyway. Great to see this.
  14. P.B.S. Special on Charles and Ray Eames

    Watched it this afternoon, had it on my DVR. Really interesting show,. Some nice footage of the IBM pavillion and even got to see some early drawings of it.
