Building the Unisphere

Recommended Posts

Taken from the New Jersey pavilion site on May 27, 1963. Photo by Mike Pender; restored 35mm slide from my collection. Looking at it I was thinking of the risk US Steel took in building the Unisphere. There was nothing like it, and they needed some very novel construction techniques. As the theme symbol of the Fair, imagine the negative publicity if anything had gone wrong!
