Operations Control Room

Recommended Posts

Was the map anything more than a static display?

Our friend Lemog did a nice 3-D depiction of this room, which had a glass wall so that viewers could watch.

A June '67 description in Canadian Magazine:

Expo's own technological nerve centre, Operations Control, is on the other side of the island. Here, from a glass-walled gallery, you look down on the control room with its closed-circuit television, illuminated maps and flashing situation board. Below, controllers speak urgently into microphones, a radio sputters and teletypes click. A red light indicates an emergency on the site and operators bustle about.

In this picture, the "grid lights" around the border of the map seem to have some lit up, so maybe there was some basic functionality in it.

I had a puzzle from Expo 67 that looked exactly like that map.

I believe that this place had a connection to  or was sponsored by GE.  It was on Ile Ste. Helene near the NYS pavilion if I correctly recall.
