Long description:
Nostalgia and grandeur combine in this pictorial tribute to two great events that eased the hardships of the Depression Era-the 1933 Chicago World's Fair and the 1939 New York World's Fair. These two great fairs gave visitors an opportunity to forget the hard times of the '30s and enjoy the myriad of events presented at these spectacular celebrations. Through this descriptive and colorful book you will experience for yourself the splendor and excitement of these two landmark World's Fairs. The author provides a virtual tour of each, from attractions such as the thrilling Skyride of 1933 and the towering Trylon of 1939 to the revolutionary fan dancing of Sally Rand along the Streets of Paris. Over 300 beautiful color photographs illustrate the vast array of posters, souvenirs, and memorabilia depicting attractions and exhibits from both fairs.
