This is way off topic but since the thread already crossed the continent you west coasters may like to know of NPR's California series which began yesterday.
"I was in Paris going down the Seine River on one of their riverboat tours and everything was all lit so beautifully. I said to my French friend, 'This boat ride down the Seine River reminds me of Disneyland.'"

With our current "leaders" I don't think Los Angeles could pull off a lemonade stand.
According to recent news reports, it looks like they can't even pull off a funeral.

Still kind of amazed that Los Angeles--nor its environs-- have ever pulled off a World's Fair.
Off of the Link Jim posted on the other thread, it looks like LA had planned an International Exposition:
Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
Exposition [never held]
x Cabrillo Fair [Variant Name]

Interestingly I contributed to a section on the 1939 NY World's Fair. I didn't realize Interama was going to be part of it or would have volunteered for that as well. It's a great book, though, with some very interesting information and pictures.
I'll be adding more to my site later. I have a number of booklets and brochures from the Interama team and they will take some time to do. It's too bad the place never got built as some of the designs look really wonderful.
