Very well done.

Thanks, Bill. In photo #4 the Rocket Thrower is making a mighty effort to get into space, but I notice the Indonesians have two Saturn missiles ready to launch.

I never know that Forms in Transit's finish was mottled during the fair.  I assumed that was from the years exposed to the elements.

I think this much mottling would have required decades of New York weather. I personally like it from an artistic viewpoint. I have a shot of the structure taken in 1972 and, although it is from the other side, appears to have a similar level of mottling to the one here. Perhaps someone has a photo of 'Forms in Transit' that has a recognizable fair background. Thanks for identifying its name for me.

Regarding photo number 2, it's obviously near an entrance, but which one?  Using my preliminary research of trying to crack the "Luminaire Code", it appears it near entrance number 1.  (WOWBO)  If the code is cracked, it will be possible to locate the place and direction of any photo which has a luminaire in it.
