Thanks Bill!

I see that the Electricab driver's nametag says Air-Mac, just like on the pedicabs. I guess Air-Mac must have had the concession for ground transportation.

Two Electricabs near the Union 76 Skyride. The famous orange 76 logo ball was introduced at the fair.

Yeah, those orange balls are history, replaced by red balls when Union merged with Conoco/Phillips in 2005-06. THEY say they're still orange, but anybody in their right mind can see they're now red. :)

Hey, what's that on the right on the souvenir table? Some kind of 3-D Viewmaster viewers that worked with strips instead of disks? Or are they regular 3-D viewers, with just coincidentally packages of commercial slides hanging behind them?

By the way, those Fairliners were just plain ugly. :D

I'm not quite sure what that was. Here's a full-size view.

I would have said packs of souvenir slides except for the orange rectangle.

Interesting.

I thought the regular commercial slide packs looked like this:

There were also slides from Technicolor, Morley Studios and others. Albert Fisher did ID the package above - I have to run out so I'll let him or Randy fill in the details.

Yes, Albert and George Mack nailed it for us.

Albert even told us about how much it cost and showed an unopened package from his own collection....

Here's 2 photos of the souvenier from my personal collection. It is NOT 3-D ... just a set of 3 slide strips of 7 color photos perstrip (21 total) with a viewer. Was sold by Sawyer who also make the Tru-Vue 3-D circular slide viewers. It sold in 1962 at the fair for about $2.50
