  1. Now you tell me about the frog.
  2. I have it available now through my website at http://www.worldsfairphotos.com/spokane74/book.htm or you can get it on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN=146712463X/waltdisneyszorroA/.
  3. I posted a picture of Fire Fighter on a different site a few months ago. The boat is still with us and is currently in a shipyard getting some TLC. Here it was when brand spanking new.
  4. That would be in the direction of the picnic grounds, which look pretty dismal in this picture, but I think it was a pre-opening day shot so perhaps that area still wasn't finished.
  5. Their site hasn't had an update in six months. I remain confident in my prediction that they won't be holding the proposed fair. There has been zero news of it here in LA for quite some time.
  6. I believe this is inside the Hall of Power section and is looking towards the east. You can see a street outside and I think that was World's Fair Boulevard, which is now the route of the LIE. Hopefully Eric will weigh in as well.
  7. Here's a view inside the Westinghouse pavilion, with displays that showed how electricity helped make iron and steel. I'll have more of these never published lobby views as I restore them.
  8. I have it on good authority it was called a Water Tower.
  9. Another piece of FDNY gear at the 1939-40 World's Fair. Anyone have any information on what type of apparatus this was?
  10. Yes, but a realist it seems.
  11. I liked it as well. Some fun cars, and I was a big "Sea Hunt" fan.
  12. The building was unattractive but I would like to have seen the rocket belt ride.
  13. I think they went "Hollywood" on the costumes.
