  4. A happy surprise tonight!

    I had a nice World's Fair related surprise tonight. We were out for dinner and I saw a guy walk into the restaurant that looked a lot like Trey Callaway. Nah, couldn't be Trey, he lives on the other side of the valley. Well, it was him! Happily he saw me as well and came over to the table to say hi. We're going to try to catch up more in a week or so. Happy coincidence we were there and spotted each other!
  5. I can't imagine it was well attended at all. Maybe that's why we never hear about it!
  6. "Be an Astronaut"

    "Be an Astronaut" - that was the sign at this Mercury Capsule mock-up at the United States Pace Park. I'm sure quite a few kids (and adults) "flew" a mission or two in this. Photographed September 13, 1964. Newly restored 35mm slide.
  7. Think you know your dwarfs?

    Yes, Sneezy was somewhere else. Perhaps over at Coke? No one would have seen him there!
  8. Think you know your dwarfs?

    Which one was missing? Newly restored 35mm slide from May 1964.
  9. Newly restored 35mm slide from August 1962. Still can't believe it's gone :(

    No, Indonesia honored its commitment and paid for the removal.
  11. Newly restored large format slide.
  12. Here's "Forms in Space" in the former Transportation Area.
  13. Building Shea Stadium

    We were there a lot, and I for one really appreciated it over Yankee Stadium. WAY better sightlines and easier to get to from Long Island!
  14. Newly restored 35mm slide.
  15. Newly restored 35mm slide.
  16. Where else would you go for an A&W Root Beer but (drum roll, please) the Hollywood Citrus House?? Yeah, I hear you. The Hollywood WHAT? I never noticed that eatery tucked into the Hollywood USA pavilion before. And there's the sign plugging A&W.
  17. Let's see if anyone knows! I'll post the answer if no one knows it.
  18. For those who like concept art, here's a nice painting of the Scott Paper pavilion from a newly restored Fair Corp slide from 1963. Anyone know anything about the artist?
  19. No and no. Here's a clue but it's not what you might think. CITRUS
  20. Another angle on the New York State Pavilion

    Here the band marches out of the Tent of Tomorrow.
