1939’s ‘World of Tomorrow’ shaped our today

1939 Worlds Fair 1A

Lovely photos

The New York World’s Fair of 1939 and 1940 promised visitors they would be looking at the “World of Tomorrow.” Not everything they saw there came true, but plenty was close. One reason for that was the fair’s own lasting influence on American architecture and industrial design.

Looking forward to Maker Faire NY, and taking back our collective birthright of a “World’s Fair” celebrating science and technology.

  1. I love the idea of the Maker Faire as the 21C reaction to the world’s fair meme of the early 20th.
