I want to know what happened to those cool skandia chairs in back! Thanks for the photo!

I imagine some folks are using them still today without a clue as to their historical value.

The original in Copenhagen was so popular I had trouble getting a good video shot because of all the people wanting to get their picture standing in front of it.

Probably so, and certainly in a nicer environment, more appropriate for such a beloved statue.

I found out the one in '64 was a replica, but the one sent to Shanghai was the original!  ...and the absence from the harbor in Denmark for a year was very controversial- maybe as much as the Vatican sending the Pieta to New York.

though the fact that it was absent meant one of the few trips to World's Fairs when I have returned and collegues knew about it: several Swedish collegues had travelled across the bridge to Copenhagen and seen the video link to Shanghai
