Pretty cool! I took a screen cap just so we could keep a lasting record here in this thread.

I'm soooo glad that you did! I've been away for the weekend (visiting the site of an old World's Fair) and with no computer access I would have missed it completely.Thank you.

Which site did you visit, wf?
Hi Pacific Coaster,
I went to Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow, site of 3 fairs: International Exhibition 1888, Scottish_Exhibition_of_National_History,_Art_and_Industry and Glasgow International Exhibition 1901
Not necessarily world's fair, in the more precise usage in this forum. But I count anything listed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_world's_fairs and subclass (expo, colonial, regional, national) in my thinking; and they seemed interesting enough, along with everything else Glasgow seemed to offer to be worth the trip
They're interesting as they actually made money, which seems a bit unlikely to happen agaion anytime soon. And there was quite a bit of information about 2 of the fairs in Kelvingrove Museum which is in the same park as the fairs.
PS I obviously haven't sourced alerts yet I've only just(!) read your question :-( Sorry

The 1938 Empire Exhibition was in Glasgow too, but in Bellahouston Park instead of Kelvingrove Park.
There is an interesting then-and-now slideshow here
It proceeds very slow, so have to be patient.
Thanks Randy. The 3D image in your slide show has an Empire Tower standing proud, and it was interesting when visiting Glasgow how many references I discovered to it having been the second city in the Empire (not the only city to describe itself as such), which I guess fits with it hosting an Empire Exhibition.
