This may be my favorite view of the Pepsi pavilion

Recommended Posts

It's got the Tower of the Four Winds, Snow White and some of the dwarfs, two luminaires, two serpentine phone booths, a feathered hat, an Escorter, a NYWF trash can  and bench - and the two girls in front with tiaras were an unexpected bonus. Newly restored 35mm slide from June 1964.

Gorgeous! (lousy composition artistically, but a NYWF treasure)

I can’t remember but was it cool for guys to wear white socks with denims?  There are two kids behind the tiara girls and two on the bench to the right.

The only thing missing here is the sound. How many people in this scene had "that song" circling in their head in competition with the P. A. music?  :lol:

P.S.: three luminaires

I can't remember what color of socks I wore at that age, nor what color at age 21, when I visited the fair.

But I do remember the high-water pants. I think boy's pants that draped onto the shoes would have been regarded like wearing your belt below your rear might be today, or at least an embarrasment because your mother bought your pants with excess length for you to grow into.
