  1. And through the 1960s, '70s and into the '80s, it was called NCR Paper. Probably until the patent ran out and the knockoffs called it carbonless. It is an amazing micro-technology. You're right, Jim. Today's kids have bypassed typewriters, typing paper, (remember onion skin?) white out and carbonless forms! Remember the erasers that were like a wheel.... and the ones that were long, and had brushes on the ends of them?
  2. Yep, that's it, Wayne, thanks. You always come up with 'em!! I wish it was more in-depth! Photos show that the edges around the perimeter of the roof seem to be thinner - maybe 4" or 6" thick. The Rilco laminated beams must have been tapered as they approached the edges.
  3. All these years and I've never heard of The Demonstration Center!!!!
  4. Didn't they give out samples of their new carbonless paper?
  5. These are great Ralph! You are bringing fresh, new insight to so many of these pavilions. We greatly appreciate your time and effort to share your photos with us! I'm sure you've already had this discussion, but what were the circumstances that you took so many unusual interior shots? How often did you go to the fair? It's fabulous and so unlike most of the photos we've seen of the fair since we started here at PTU some sixteen or seventeen years ago! If someone could post a link to that discussion I'd sure appreciate it.
  6. Have we come across detailed info on how they formed the compound-curved concrete of the Kodak pavilion? We have quite detailed info on how the New York State pavilion was constructed. It would be interesting to know how they did Kodak. It appears to be random thickness boards, but how were they supported to make the compound curve transitions so well?
  7. What is that big vase/cup thing in circle of bushes in the last photo? You've probably talked about it but it's new to me.
  8. That couple looks like they're in a magazine ad for the fair!
  9. Not a 1964 American kid. Maybe a private scool uniform? Also, the guy in the lower left is taking a picture of the kid (or the sculpture) too, so why is our photographer taking the shot - and from where?
  10. Nifty observation,, Ned.
  11. Amazing guts those astronauts had (all astronauts have)! Is that a Gemini capsule?
  12. Hi Mitch and Andy. Hey Mitch, Andy's legit and would be a good solution to the emergency custody issue. Personally, I'd love to see the unit on display at the Henry Ford - I think it's right up their alley. Doug
  13. Hi Mitch, how about the Smithsonian or The Henry Ford?
  14. Thanks, Wayne. Then at least another 1.3 trillion must be shot, but not posted on line.
  15. I'll bet that more photos are shot in one day now, than were shot at the Worlds Fair in two seasons. Maybe in one hour.
