1939 World’s Fair 75th anniversary.

Continuing a theme from last week, today is the 75th anniversary of the 1939 World’s Fair, which was held on the same site as the 1964 fair would be a quarter-century later. This is President Roosevelt’s speech on the fair’s opening day; it was the first Presidential address to be broadcast on television.


1964 Worlds Fair 50th anniversary.

The 1964 World's Fair opened 50 years ago today; to celebrate, here's the memorabilia I've collected from the fair.
