World's Fair Wednesday= 1964-65 New York World's Fair Souvenirs

Not only do I collect photographs of the 1964-65 New York World's Fair, but also collect souvenirs. These three souvenirs are very nice and compact. First up is a bicycle license plate with the orange and blue color scheme and the Unisphere. Nice tag line of Peace Through Understanding. I can just imagine a a kid riding their Schwinn bicycle with this proudly attached to the bike.

The next two came from the same child. He or she saved the stickers and decal by placing them on wax paper. First up is an I was there sticker with great graphics of the various pavilions and attractions.

The final souvenir is an I was there decal with the Unisphere.

Wow, they're fantastic. I WAS there! All I have are the memories and a few B&W pics.
I would love to find memorabilia like this someday. Thanks for sharing:)

My parents & I along with cousins from Texas went to this fair. All I have are memories & a few snapshots. Thought there would be more photos, since my mom always had a camera. Saw a footstool today in a store with a postage stamp of the fair embellished on it, very cool.
