Now you can use any of six credit cards to fly United to Hawaii or to Disneyland or to

The New York World's Fair,

where you can buy an orange-on-black Unisphere balloon!

 

Anybody notice these balloons before?

I think those are blue ink on colored balloons, Wayne. Pretty good trick printing those all the way around the balloon - great looking! Notice that the pink Jeep with the surrey-fringed top has Willeys stamped in the hood.

Maybe they're printed on two sides when flat, with edges corresponding to two meridian lines.

Here's a brochure for Brother sewing machines, etc. at the Travel and Transportation pavilion; complete with prices and ordering instructions.

Georg Jensen inc. jewelers - not actually at the Fair, but while you're in New York...

Jensen was at the '39-40 NYWF... and there is some indication that they may have had some presence in an exhibit in '64-65- but that's not certain.

It looks like women could buy the same outfit that hostesses at the NY State Pavilion wore. Very classy looking ensemble. Does anyone remember the contest where the winner received a trip to the NYWF for themselves and 100 friends?
