World's Fair Wednesday- Unisphere, Statue and Coca Cola

More views of the 1964 New York World's Fair. First up are two views of the Unisphere. Much like the Trylon and Perisphere from 1939, the Unisphere was the image for the 1964 fair. Seen on much merchandise, the symbol was a large steel structure surrounded by wading pools and fountains. The Unisphere is still in existence, the pool half filled in with concrete.

Next up is the statues on the fairgrounds. The greenery around the statue makes a nice contrast to the asphalt and concrete of the fairgrounds.

Final image is an interior picture of the Coca Cola pavilion showcasing the many products of the large beverage company.

I remember when Coke actually tasted like Cola. Now it tastes like nothing in particular.
