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.

Another 1939 NYWF publicity photo
The United States Steel pavilion was an interesting one, for the support beams were located on the outside, not buried inside the walls. This provided a wide open space inside for the exhibits without the distraction of columns and walls. It also made for an unusual look and a great subject for photographers.
