1939 world's fair photography

This weekend the Queens Museum of Art opens a fun show about the 1939 World's Fair.

Perhaps the most magnificent fair ever built and the most awesome example of "yesterday's picture of tomorrow" futurecasting, this photography show covers what it took to build a magnificent temporary environment.

Think your events are difficult, and require elaborate construction? Here's a great look into the past, where things were built without computers. This fair was under construction for 3 years, and spanned over 1200 acres. Without the internet.
