We sure were Pan-American-centric in those years. Didn't they change Sixth Ave. to Avenue of the Americas around this time?

In early '64, you start out with your basic kiosk.

Still too hot.... better open another window, giving us a peak at piles of brochures and pamphlets.

Good place for a Pinkie to lean in and try to beat the heat.
