New York World's Fair State of Mind

Three new views of the New York World's Fair in 1965. One of the neat things about this set of slides is that they were developed by Sears and have a nice mount. First up is a view of the Avenue of Flags with the Unisphere in the background. The crowd is taking some great pictures.

Next up is a shot of a rest area with the Coca Cola Pavilion in the background. I like the bubble structures that were the snack bars.

One of my favorite attractions was the US Rubber Royal Tires Ferris Wheel. I wish that the ride was still operational.

That first photo is a beauty. Very classic image.

Nice! I agree with K. Martinez, the Avenue of the Flags is a great pic. (I posted some NYWF slides today as well!).
