    One thought on “The New York World's Fair, 1939/1940: in 155 Photographs by Richard Wurts and Others”

    1. 155 b&w photos of the extraordinary buildings and exhibits of the 1939 New York World's Fair. Lovely techno-utopian architecture and design. The world of tomorrow.The photos are reasonably well reproduced (I read the Dover Thrift edition, which is a medium-format paperback). I would have liked a bit more in the way of exposition, but I guess there are other books for that.

    2. Although the NYPL digital library contains lots of photos from the Fair, they lack proper description and context. This book provides such a context and serves as a good touring guide to the past. Art Deco! Murals! Strongly allegoric statues of virtues of modernity, mostly with boobs exposed! World fairs and their history is a wonderful aspect of the past and this book is showing it all.
