Even more ways to eat at the fair
I'm still working through pictures of food opportunities at the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. For some reason it's making me hungry! It looks like these guys were having fun though. There were a number of cotton candy stands at the fair, along with other ways to ruin a waistline.
The vending machines behind them were also quite popular. Some of them offered hot meals, which was a real novelty back in 1962. Numerous newspaper and magazine articles covered this exciting innovation in American cuisine. I can't say I have ever thought any meals from vending machines were worth writing about - at least not in a positive light. The machines seen here offered up cigarettes, ice cream, shakes, cold food and hot food.
