That's a lot of water up in the air at one time. Its a shame they did not keep this after the fair closed.

Yes, think what a draw it could be all summer long. Shows set to a wide variety of music from around the world.

The Lagoon of Nations in 1939 and The Pool of Industry in 1964, but neither survived.  I sometimes wonder how many 1964-65 visitors stood there and reminisced about what the fountains looked like 25 years earlier.

In 1940 the morning after the Fair closed the Lagoon was already drained to mud while the flag was still flying high on the Trylon.
