New York World's Fair 1964/1965 Souvenir Book

Forward into the past! 1964 was the middle of the space race and visions of our glorious future abounded. If you were a very lucky child you got to go to the World's Fair in New York. (Now famous from Men in Black cameo).

Wood, N. and Editors of Time-Life Books. New York World's Fair 1964/1965 Offical Souvenir Book. New York: NY 118 pp. 31 cm.

The space pavillion allowed you to see some of these wonders. One of the highlights was a 3-D movie of space flight in the near future.

You also saw models of future space craft and the details from the upcoming Apollo missions and our conquest of the Moon

It all seemed just around the corner in the brave new future!
