  1. I wonder how many people still have their artwork! Newly restored 35mm slide.

  3. Feeling Goofy today?

    Newly restored 35mm slide from 1964.

  5. Have something fun, different, or just plain odd in your world's fair/expo collection? Well, dig it out of the closet, garage, or attic and show it off to your fellow collectors. I'll be hosting a free "Show and Tell" session on Zoom this Saturday at 10 AM PACIFIC time (details below). Let's plan on each attendee getting five minutes to showcase the best of their collection. Hopefully this will give everyone a chance. If we cycle through everyone then we can start a second round, etc. I know some folks have collections that would fill the whole time but this way we can try to fit everyone in. Please pass this on to anyone else you know who would like to join in. Bill Cotter is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

  6. World's Fair Show and Tell - May 30 - 10 AM Pacific

    Sounds intriguing, Wayne!
  7. Spruce it up with paint - and haul out that trash!

    Not under its own banner like in 1939 (had a big restaurant). I have never seen any signage for them at 64 either.
  8. Spruce it up with paint - and haul out that trash!

    That's interesting, Wayne - especially as I don't think Ballantine Beer was at the 64 Fair.
  9. A few new slides.

    Always good to see more!

    And elsewhere you could buy special cigarette packs in WF colors.
  18. The Fair From the Air

    No, there's a building with what looks like a striped roof in some other photos that can be seen here just between the road and the Press Building. So far it has eluded us as to what it was. May not even be a building - possibly a tent for a major press event?

    Someday! we will find out more on that one. Someday!
  20. Remembering Tomorrow - a free Zoom presentation

    You bet! I was an angel at school, of course, but saw what they did to the others. Actually, a true story. I went to a Catholic elementary school for a time and it was over-crowded so they went to split hours. I went in the morning, and my brother Jim, who was a grade behind, went in the afternoon. One day I was home watching cartoons or something when Jim came in the door and stared pounding me on the head yelling "I'm not Billy Cotter!" over and over. Well, when the fighting stopped, we finally got an explanation. He had been in class and the nun asked him a question and he didn't know the answer, so she said "Your brother Billy knew it last year." That apparently happened 3-4 times and Jim blurted out "Well I'm not Billy Cotter!" Out came the ruler. Poor Jim was not in a good mood when he got home.
  21. Join me and Albert Fisher this Saturday for a look at the creation and the fun of the 1939-1940 & 1964-1965 New York World's Fairs. We'll be showing rare pictures and films, including some Albert shot while working at the 1964 Fair, with scenes of it being built and more. A Q&A session will follow the talk. This will be a free event on Zoom, starting at 10 AM Pacific time on Saturday, May 2, 2020. A link to the event will be posted here at 9 AM that morning, so please stop by then and join us on Zoom!

    They actually did make them there, and you could pick a pack to take home with special World's Fair packaging.
  24. Due to a software problem the system had to be restored to the Thursday backup. That meant any messages from Friday morning were lost. My apologies for any inconvenience. I am actively working on getting the site to a more reliable hosting vendor.
