Mystery Photo of the Day

Recommended Posts

(Sound familiar?)

Unfortunately, when one gets to older posts in this Forum, most of the attachments are corrupted, unworkable, link to a 404, or brings you to a completely unrelated photo.  (A hockey player for example)

Well, going back some 12 years, these photos showed up in an unrelated thread and have me intrigued.

Can anyone identify either of these two photos and tell me what they are?

1: What and where is this impressive building?

 and 2: What and where is Ruby's World of Tomorrow?

The first photo is the Civil Engineering Pavilion at the 1958 Brussels World's Fair.  It actually survived for several years after the Fair closed but was eventually demolished to make way for a new structure.  Here is a more complete photo showing the entire building.
