Interesting upcoming World's Fair auction, with a nice selection from 1964-65. Unisphere flower arrangement frame, police/parking/maintenance badges, Pepsi Pavilion cooler, etc. URL: http://www.worldsfairauction.com/cgi-bin/catalog.cgi
I'm working on a project here with Expo 2015's Social Media team and I think the audience here would definitely be interested in participating. I'm creating an archive of mostly ephemeral materials (and stories about them) to save for posterity at the Donald G. Larson Collection on International Expositions and Fairs at the California State University in Fresno, California. The materials will be accesible to students, scholars, and the general public there, but we're focusing on the use of these items in the year 2115. I'm inspired a great deal by the celebrations surrounding the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Panama-Pacific expositions. There are some great items left from that world's fair, but seeing them, I always want to ask people in 1915 how and where they were used. Fortunately, we're in a position to return the favor to 2115, so we're asking people to fill out a card to accompany the item describing the item and perhaps telling a story about it. I'm outlining (and updating) the project at: Expo2015plus100.org. Let me know what you think!
