  1. Here's a seldom seen part of the New England States Pavilion, a restaurant called the Millstone Terrace. It looks quite tranquil! Newly restored 126-format print from 1964 from my collection.
  2. It wasn't just all dolphins and speedboats! Newly restored 35mm slide from my collection.
  3. This bust of Simon Bolivar was outside the Venezuela pavilion. The slide was dated May/June 1964. Newly restored 35mm slide from my collection.
  4. Anyone thirsty?

    How about a nice Watney's Ale? Only 60 cents.
  5. This angle gives a good indication of how large it was. Newly restored large format slide from my collection.
  6. Everyone ready for a ride on the IBM People Wall?

    It was a very memorable experience for sure.
  7. Picture of the Day

    Millennials ...
  8. Can you ID this pavilion?

    September 1965
  9. This helps show the size of the fountain. Newly restored 35mm slide from my collection.
  10. Anyone know for sure which pavilion this was? Newly restored 35mm slide from my collection.
  11. Can you ID this pavilion?

    The things one must do in the name of science...
  12. Was this a change in architecture?

    Just a name change on the outside to "Demonstration Center".
  13. Anyone want to go for a ride?

    I believe the NJ towers are all that is original to the Fair, with one car left that carries maintenance crews only. I saw the story about the sabotage in Canada. That is unreal, considering how hard it probably was to cut that cable!
  14. Guaranteed to make you hungry

    Denmark Pavilion September 1965
  15. Been busy!

    Yup, another goof! Perhaps I shouldn't do some of this stuff so late at night but that's when it's quiet around here. All fixed now, many thanks! Keep them coming! PS - it's nice to know people actually do look at the site!!

    I just did some updates on my site: August 5 2019 1964-1965 New York: Completed reformatting the Miscellaneous Photos and the Alphabetic Index pages. This completes the reformatting of the Online Tour section of the site. Please let me know if you spot any mistakes or broken links. https://www.worldsfairphotos.com/whats-new.htm
  17. A May 1965 view of a kitchen display

    Yup, that seems a match for sure. Thanks, Wayne!!

    I think those are the A/C units up on the roof, set back in line with the columns.

    Where do you see it in Festival of Gas, Wayne? Bill Young suggested Better Living Center.
  20. It was so exciting getting a preview of the wonders that were soon to come. That's the Ford pavilion in the background. May 1965. Newly restored 35mm slide from my collection.

    Oops! Thanks, nice catch. All fixed (might need to reload the page to see the updated photo). Keep them coming!
