  1. Things were/are looking up?

    Here's a good look at the current status http://nyspproject.com/progress_report_for_the_new_yorkV.htm So yes, work is underway - not as much as we might like, not as fast as we might like, but at least it's going in the right direction!

    Nice find! Here it is in color. These were dated April 14, 1964.
  8. Just in from my publisher: Hi, Bill, I am pleased to inform you that your proposal, San Francisco's 1939-1940 World's Fair: The Golden Gate International Exposition, has been approved. We are delighted that we can anticipate adding your book to Arcadia’s list of titles in our Images of America series, and we look forward to working with you again in the coming months. In addition to your full-size title, this book was selected for consideration for our Postcards of America projects. Target shelf date Feb. 2021
  9. I tried the Library of Congress. No reply to my email. I'll try all of these again when I surface for air.
  10. I wish I knew what their plan/mission statement is. I would think about donating some of my stuff, but I know that they got ride of a bunch of donated items in the past when a former curator decided to move away from anything Fair related. If it's going to be sold off I might as well sell it myself and enjoy the money. Still trying to think about a good home for the photos where they will be useful.
  11. A different angle on the Atomedic Hospital

    At least one. I think in Georgia?
  12. Remember the Maine!

  13. The Rocket Thrower
