  1. A detail from new acquisition. January 4th, 1939. This is a but a crop - the whole image shows the entire Fair - literally all - all parking lots, both lakes, all Governments, even the Marina and air/sea arrival area. I once sold an original print of this - but that was actually a crop and I did not know it! This is a slightly smaller print, but the whole image uncropped and likely a contact print. Full size here - click and enjoy
  2. Detail from an original 8" x 10" Kodachrome transparency. Ford's Wheel of Progress.
  3. City Expositions?

    I know this is a site dedicated to world's fairs, but is there a place for specific city expositions and fairs (I'm not talking about current things like the Ohio State Fair, but at least the larger, older ones)? For instance, I'm from Cincinnati, and our town had numerous Industrial Expositions around the late-19th & early-20th c. See here: http://digitalprojects.libraries.uc.edu/napc99/OMIExhibit/OMIExhibitContactSheet.html http://www.cincinnativiews.net/expositions.htm Other people might not be interested in these types of expositions, but if there's a place for it on this site, please direct me. Thanks, Matt
  4. Willets Point subway station

    A still image from a 1964 home movie shows the Willets Point station of the Flushing 7 line after the World's Fair opened. Shea Stadium was already up but the signage hadn't been changed to reflect that yet.
