I have a small batch of images from the Century 21 Expo, and this one was included. Does anybody know anything about it? I might guess it is from the Hall of Industry, but am probably wrong!

My guess would be the Transport '21 pavilion, which was focused on railroads. Nice slide! Let us know when you put these on your blog.

Those Milwaukee Road cars lower left presaged containerization!
Trains with 4 Vista-Domes in the consist never came to pass, alas.

Ford had a major display there, so that makes sense. What an odd looking car!

It kind of reminds me of the GM Firebird concept cars too, though it is certainly different from those.

Philco was acquired by Ford on December 11, 1961, according to an internet search.
I have a Philco brochure from the Ford exhibit at the '64-'64 fair.
