Steel and Bridges

Two more views of pavilions at the 1939 New York World's Fair. First up is the steel structure for the United States Steel. The dome structure looks kind of like a hard hat. The pavilion featured the story of steel from mining to final manufacturing.

The second image shows the bridge supporting the longest escalator from the end of the show Democracity seen inside the Perisphere. The bridge connected the Trylon to the Perisphere. The two structures were the main theme buildings for the World's Fair and are featured in much of the merchandise.
