  1. Hi All, I wanted to share a new 11x14 photo I added to my collection. Late 1938, Perisphere nearing completion from the highest point available. You can see the Observation Platform and also the edge of the Trylon on the far right. It can be seen at the NYPL site as NYPL catalog ID (B-number): b11686556 here - NYPL . I am unable to make a scan at this size so I am showing their copy for now. Mine is also double-weight, lacks the "FILE COPY" stamps all over the place, and is actually not as cropped as the NYPL example - so showing a good bit more image . The vantage - this was taken from inside the absolute tip top window looking down, with the GCP off to the far left. There is another photo of the same at the NYPL taken at the 470 foot window (you can see it at the linked page - see the other oversized images in this collection), but when you look out of that window, you can just barely see "over" to the center of the top surface of the Perisphere, where the rings meet - you need to be at this height - nearing 610' to see this in this fashion! And that is a bit too high for me! Oddly, the landscaping is ahead of the structures construction! This is now one of my favorite photographs. Best always and enjoy, Eric
  2. 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
  3. Hello Folks, I can't remember if I posted this or not - if you can't either then we are golden. Early 1939, medium format Kodachrome transparency measuring 3" x 5" showing the Theme Center with the "gateway" of sculpture that marked your entrance (or exit) from the Production and Distribution Zone proper. I don't claim to have this color correct but is is close. The Elements by Jennewein(sp?) should be this cream with gold plaques. The water is not on at Electrical Utilities so that looks odd. Something really odd happened to the color when I uploaded the image - will have to redo. It will be worth the wait :D
