New York Worlds Fair- Part 5

Heading back to the 1939 New York Worlds Fair. First up is the Dupont World of Chemistry. I love the Dr. Frankenstein lab apparatus as the main sculpture for the building.

A photograph of the fountains in front of the Trylon and Perisphere.

A shot of the Italia pavilion in the Government section.

Final image is another unknown. It appears to be some sort of painted horse the two sisters are standing in front. I like the design as the horse appears to be folk art.

The Italian Pavilion is pretty striking with the waterfall cascading down from the top of the tower!

Thanks for this series. Some of these images are really evocative and haunting. Much appreciated.
