New York World's Fair-Part 3

More images from the fantastic New York World's Fair of 1939. First up is a nice image of the Ford Pavilion located at the Transportation area of the Fair. The photograph is taken from the Garden Court.

Next up is a close up of the electrical statue from the General Electric Pavilion. The composition of the photograph is fantastic.

Next up is another great image of one of the statues. The statue was titled Speed and was sculpted by Joseph Reiner and stood in the court of Communication. In the background is the Crosley building. At that time, Crosley was a major manufacturer of radios.

Final image is from one of the pavilions and is another photo with great composition. I would love to know what is in the boxes everyone is carrying and what has happened to the photograph that is being snapped.
