All routes lead to the Fair
Sometimes you come across a souvenir that is really different from the rest. It doesn't have to be expensive, or anything the rest of the world will want. This is one of them. It's a paper placemat, the type used in thousands of diners and restaurants across the country. It's a great promo piece for the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair, and one that I'm glad I came across. I love the image, plus the fact that someone thought enough of it to take it home and keep it in good shape for 40+ years.
