Major updates underway at worldsfairphotos.com

Recommended Posts

I've been working on updating my website to better accommodate mobile devices, and am finally tackling the 1964-65 pages. I just did the Industrial Area - please take a look and let me know if I broke anything! I did some minor tweaks and added a few photos but will go back and add more if/when I get through this part of the project.

Yes, been there for a few months now. I need to find a way to automatically redirect non-ssl sessions there. I had a way but the ISP later had a problem, so I need to go back to the drawing board. I'll add it to my list. As you know there's a few other things we need to chat about more.

Bill, I noticed the link for the architect's model of the Hall of Education is bad.

I know you weren't asking for typos, but, on the Mormon page:

"The Art. A nine-ton replica of Bertel Thorvaldsen's famous statue, The Chrstus, "  should be "...The Christus..."

I do want any typos, Wayne, so keep them coming! Just fixed this one.

Unisphere typo - missing a zero - "weighs 900,00 pounds"

Reading the-descriptions of the pavilions and looking at the photos again impresses me with one thing the Fair got right, the extensive use of water features. It's seldom mentioned, but the New Jersey buildings were floating in a huge pond, not as obvious as Chrysler, but still it must have been pleasant on a summer day.

Westinghouse also missing a zero:

"see if anyone could find these 5,00 years"

Thanks. Fixed! That was on the old version of the site forever. It's funny how some things have lay hidden like that. Keep 'em coming!

(Unisphere fixed too!)
