  1. By the Numbers

    I concur with Jim. And, I seem to have missed that there were any audio recordings you made. Where are they located?
  2. Breaking Up the Fair

    Very sad to see these pictures come to an end. It was very much appreciated Mr Quinn.
  3. New England

    AWESOME
  4. Water Ski Show #1: Opening Action

    Oh right, I'm bored. I can't believe how much time I wasted looking at these incredible photos showing details not captured in any stock photo or blurry Instamatic. Keep boring me. Please.
  5. Masonic Center

    Love all of the night photos you took!
  6. I want to know what happened to those cool skandia chairs in back! Thanks for the photo!
  7. International Quickies

    Ralph, you passed by them without much attention but preserved history in a moment for those who want to relive an experience or see one they wish they had. Not in stock photos but of a man out for a walk capturing an evening in professional clarity. Thank you for your service.
  8. I hope. When are the behind the scenes Futurama slides getting scanned?
  9. Bill, are these art scans available on your CDs in higher resolution?
  10. Surfing the web found this old newspaper article: http://newspaperarchives.uhcc.govt.nz/cgi-bin/upperhutt?a=d&d=UpperHuttLeader19641209.2.41 It notes that there were 68-72 persons over the winter refurbishing the exhibits. That's a lot. How many in the rest of the fair? And there must be photos out there of the winter over party.
  11. The Vault III CD-ROM

    Everyone should know that for any files you want to save forever on disk, do the following things. Never mark them with a sharpie (unless labelled safe for disk media), never put an adhesive label on them, and replace them every 5 years. CDs and DVDs are not durable. the only durable format is the new M-Disk which has a 500 year lifespan. If you want a label, one can buy M-Drive compatible burners with the capability to burn a label on the front. I've seen disks ruined after just a month with an adhesive on them. The M-Disk uses a ceramic base instead of organic like most writable media.
  12. Looks like someone cleaned up the GM pre-futurama video. For anyone curious, this video is b-roll footage of the maquette, or smaller model that GM did of the ride before constructing the "full size" Futurama dioramas.
  13. Mega Sized Futurama Find

    I would certainly pay for a CD with scans of the photos!
  14. Mega Sized Futurama Find

    If you take a look at the first photo, on the left, is a prototype space set. As I recall GM built an entire Futurama ride which I think was in 1/6 scale. So they built models of all the models before final construction. This prototype ride was filmed for a 1964 Delco film (can't remember the name of it) where you can see the rough concept for Futurama. I hope the buyer makes some scans as I would like to see some images.

    Take a look at this massive reference of Futurama from an estate sale! http://www.ebay.com/itm/GM-Futurama-Press-Release-Lot-1964-New-York-Worlds-Fair-Photos-Historic-Set-/191949302312?hash=item2cb111ea28%3Ag%3AyZoAAOSwawpXtitr&nma=true&si=1XRFKaGsK7Uo0rZQ7rNILtRAHUo%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 Unfortunately I missed the sale as my Ebay search alert isn't working for some reason.
