Official Guide New York World's fair 1964/1965
Editeur : Time Life Books
Année de sortie : 1964
Langue : Anglais

Préface de Robert Moses, Président de l'Exposition :

The Fair aims to be universal, to have something for everyone.

What is it you want? Vast forces dormant in nuggets of imprisoned sunlight? Machines that fly, think, transport, fashion and do man's work? Spices, perfumes, ivory, apes and peacocks?
Dead Sea Scrolls? Images divine and graven? Painted lilies and refined gold? The products of philosophy, which is the guide of life, and knowledge, which is power? We have them all.

Study the Fair. Come often. When you get here, don't rush. Be wise. Space your visits; save your arches, spare your muscles, use your head; patronize buses, rolling stock, rides, ramps and escalators; spot the oases and cultivate repose in the midst of multifarious activities.

We welcome you to the Fair.

The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair
Auteurs : Bill Cotter, Bill Young
Editeur : Arcadia
Année de sortie : 2004
Langue : Anglais

Image


Description :

The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair was the largest international exhibition ever built in the United States. More than one hundred fifty pavilions and exhibits spread over six hundred forty-six acres helped the fair live up to its reputation as "the Billion-Dollar Fair." With the cold war in full swing, the fair offered visitors a refreshingly positive view of the future, mirroring the official theme: Peace through Understanding. Guests could travel back in time through a display of full-sized dinosaurs, or look into a future where underwater hotels and flying cars were commonplace. They could enjoy Walt Disney's popular shows, or study actual spacecraft flown in orbit. More than fifty-one million guests visited the fair before it closed forever in 1965. The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair captures the history of this event through vintage photographs, published here for the first time.

Bill Cotter and Bill Young are longtime members of the World's Fair Collectors Society. Cotter's many visits to the fair as an adolescent inspired him to become a submarine designer for the United States Navy and later an entertainment executive. Young hosts a prominent website that explores the history of the fair and its space-age attractions. Both are avid collectors of world fair memorabilia.

The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.

The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair: Creation and Legacy
Auteurs : Bill Cotter, Bill Young
Editeur : Arcadia
Année de sortie : 2004
Langue : Anglais

Image


Description :

When the gates of the 1964–1965 New York World’s Fair swung open on April 24, 1964, the first of more than 51 million lucky visitors entered, ready to witness the cutting edge of worldwide technology and progress.

Faced with a disappointing lack of foreign participants due to political contention, the fair instead showcased the best of American industry and science.

While multimillion-dollar pavilions predicted colonies on the moon and hotels under the ocean, other forecasts, such as the promises of computer technology, have surpassed even the most optimistic predictions of the fair.

The 1964–1965 New York World’s Fair: Creation and Legacy uses rare, previously unpublished photographs to examine the creation of the fair and the legacies left behind for future generations.

The End of the Innocence: The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair
Auteurs : Lawrence R. Samuel
Editeur : Syracuse University Press
Année de sortie : 2007
Langue : Anglais

Image


Description :

From April to October in 1964 and 1965, some 52 million people from around the world flocked to the New York World's Fair, an experience that lives on in the memory of many individuals and in America's collective consciousness.

Lawrence R. Samuel offers a thought-provoking portrait of this seminal event and of the cultural climate that surrounded it, countering critics' assessment of the Fair as the "ugly duckling" of global expositions.

Although much attention has been paid to the controversial role of Fair president Robert Moses, who tried to use the event to ensure his personal legacy, the Fair itself was for the great majority of visitors an overwhelmingly positive, often inspirational, and sometimes transcendent experience that truly delivered on its theme of "peace through understanding."

Much of the Fair's popularity, Samuel suggests, stemmed from its looking backward as much as forward, offering visitors sanctuary from the cultural storm that was rapidly approaching in the mid-1960s.

Opening just five months after President Kennedy's assassination, the Fair allowed millions to celebrate international brotherhood while the conflict in Vietnam came to a boil.

The Fair glorified the postwar American dream of limitless optimism just as a counterculture of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll was coming into being. It was, in short, the last gasp of the American Dream: The End of the Innocence.
