I've long been fascinated by World's Fairs. I've been lucky enough to have attended several myself and have been collecting photos from them for years. I've even written books on some of them, as listed on my site www.worldsfairphotos.com.

Things I wish I had seen in person - Part 3
1933-1934 Century of Progress Chicago
This view was taken looking to the south from the roof of the Sears Roebuck Building. Two cars of the aerial sky ride can be seen near the top. I think I would have enjoyed looking at them from this angle, but taking a ride? Well, I'll have to think about that one.
