The 1939 New York World`s Fair [Jan. 23rd, 2017|12:39 pm]
Ретрофутуризм. Retrofuturism



«... An idea dreamed up at the height of the depression, the theme of the 1939 World's Fair in New York was "The World of Tomorrow."

Futurama, the model city of 1960, designed by Norman Bel Geddes for the General Motors Exhibit at the New York World's Fair in 1939. This photograph shows an elevated view of the huge model of a futuristic city with widely spaced skyscrapers, double-decked streets with moving cars representing traffic patterns, and parks and landing pads for helicopters and auto-gyros shown on the roofs of low buildings.

The Coronation Scot, in America for the New York World's Fair, made several runs between Washington and Baltimore, where she awakened considerable interest. The Coronation Scot stops here on a bridge near Washington, alongside the famous American train Royal Blue, on March 27, 1939.
