I don't have any pics of the original GGE, but I spent most of 1950 among the remnants on Treasure Island while attending the Navy's electronic school.  Treasure Island 1950 A.jpg

And twenty-three years later my kids posed on the same llama.

And my daughter rumpled (pun intended) the dignity of one of the citizens!

These are great.  I remember taking a trip with my Cub Scout troop to Treasure Island around 1963.  A few of these statues were still in place and were pointed out to us.

Great photos.  It must have been a beautiful setting for the GGIE.  Had it been the only world’s fair in 1939, that fair would rank as one of the best but it lived in the shadow of the Trylon and Perisphere.
