1968-poland.jpg

June 1968 view of the Poland pavilion, which had been the State of Vermont pavilion for Expo. Restored 126 format slide.

Nice photograph, but to the credit of the architects who designed the structure, it really does advocate for Vermont.  It looks and feels like Vermont.  So this is proof that a Vermont Pavilion of any other name, may not be quite as effective and certainly won't smell as sweet.

What are the objects in the foreground under the clear domes? Lighting?

Telephone booths.

Do recent world's fairs even have telephone booths?

Great question.

In a sense, that'd be like asking "Would a Jim Rockford series reboot have telephone booths?"

Disney World still has "pay phones" (They don't take coins.  Calls within WDW are free, you need a card for anything else) I assume they're for foreign tourists without mobile phones that work in the US.  I'd guess modern world's fairs still have them, but don't make them obvious.

Without telephone booths where would Superman be able to make a quick change?

Now we know Jim Rockford can work in Disney.
