    Best Book on the Fair!

    I am used to seeing these books in plain B/W photos. But to my surprise the entire book has FULL COLOR photos! Alas I missed the fair because I was not born until July '65, In looking at the photos and reading the captions I was able to go to relive the fair as if it were being put on today. I recommend this book to anyone who collects World's Fair items.

    I miss this Fair SO much!

    This is a must for fans of the 1964-65 NY World's Fair, history fans, or anyone who ever attended this or just wants to know what it was all about. This is all encompassing and totally engrossing. I loved it. I even bought this for my brother, and the other book on the 1964-65 World's Fair in this series by the same authors.

    Great Memories

    Though this book is small in quantity it is large in nostalgic value. The content is predominantly photographic and clear. The major exhibits were well represented as well as numerous less obvious ones. The GM, Ford, Bell Telephone, GE, Kodak, Port Authority Heliport (currently a restuarant), Electric Companies Tower of Light, US Royal's Tire, and Chrysler's giant engine were included. Also, items of interest included Michaelangelo's "Pieta" sculpture, Sinclair Oil Company's Dinoland, IBM"s geodesic dome, AMF"s monorail as well as the New York City"s model of itself. A chapter is devoted to the fair's pre-history which included numerous construction photographs. A chapter is devoted to the exhibits presented by many countrys, noting the context of the "cold war era".<BR/><BR/>This little book is a great read!
