Some fun souvenirs found glued in an old photo album

Very cool discoveries.  I've always liked the word "Odditorium."  Those prices of 40 and 50 cents weren't exactly inexpensive in 1939.

No, especially when compared to the admission price for the Fair itself, or food prices seen on menus.

Indeed, Bill. From memory - 1939 Aviation Bar and Grill - 35 cents got a ham dinner with mashed, string beans, dressing/gravy, roll, coffee and soda. And dessert! Pie or something, likely ala mode (SP?).
