Rob Bianco

NYWF 50th anniversary exhibit to be featured at MA Sate Fair

Recommended Posts

I hope your model ultimately ends up in Dearborn at the Henry Ford museum.

Hey Rob, are you the same Rob Bianco I saw on the Nat Geo documentary about the 1990s on Labor Day?

BTW, we have duplicate threads running on this topic:

Rob, National Geographic ran a six hour documentary (three 2-hour shows) on the 1990s on Labor Day. We thought it was good. A quick Google says it originally aired in July. I'm sure they'll run it again!

I guess it was Robert Bianco from USA Today. He's listed in the second paragraph of this link about the show:

Here's some footage from my appearance at the Big E Exposition talking about the 1964-65 New York World's Fair.

I'm so glad some of the posters here have the actual video posted (so it is viewable).  But in the case above--the dreaded "Page Not Found"

I really wish I had know about this (BigE exhibit).

Thanks for posting this, Bill.  After not going for a few years, I went back to the BigE in 2015, missing this by a year.

I recognize most of the objects in the display cases, but what is the small white round one situated between the board games?

It was a holder for some sort of cloth - silk like? - of some kind. I have one buried in the garage somewhere.

I found it.  It's one of those portable pocketbooks made out of netting.

Speaking of the Big E (having gone yesterday), how is it that an exposition made up of six New England states managed to have an exhibit of a World's Fair which was in none of the six states?

I realize it was the 50th anniversary, but it seems New England celebrated it more than New York did.
