World's Fair Wednesday- Various Views of the 1965 NYWF

Some various views around the 1965 New York World's Fair. First up is a picture of the Unisphere made by US Steel and representing the theme of the fair, peace through understanding.

A night view of the Unisphere with the lit fountains.

Next up is an interior of the United Kingdom Pavilion showing the kitchens and food of the country. I like the toy soldiers on the table.

The last shot is definitely one I would not have taken, the Dynamic Maturity Pavilion sponsored by the National Retired Teachers Association and American Association of Retired Persons. One of the highlights of this pavilion was free refreshments from 2 top 5 PM in the "Patio 55" on a daily basis.

Yes, there can't be too many photos of the Dynamic Maturity Pavilion! It looks too extreme for me.

I doubt that I will ever be either...

dynamic or mature.

That interior is actually the Danish pavilion. All the toys on the table are by Kay Bojesen (love the monkeys about to attack their meals!). Thanks for this- I've been wanting to seen interiors of this building forever!
