What makes fairs special - Part 2

Another thing I really enjoy about world's fairs is meeting the people who are working there or traveled distances to attend. I have very vivid memories of talking to a hostesses at the UAR Pavilion at the 1964 NY fair. It was really interesting to hear her thoughts on what it was like to be in the US, and how things were back home. I had never been out of the country except for a day in Canada, so this was a real unique experience. I've traveled a lot since then but that day has stuck with me.

Here's a view of two hostesses at the Germany pavilion at Expo 67. I bet they enjoyed their time in Montreal - such a great city - but I wonder how they felt then or now about those hats...
