38 years ago in Flushing Meadows

I lost track of the date and forgot to post this one yesterday. This is the Unisphere from the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair as it looked on March 15, 1963. Can you imagine how nervous the designers and builders must have been as they worked to assemble it? If anything had gone wrong it would have been a major embarrassment and left the Fair without its theme symbol. Happily it all came together and the Unisphere is still with us today.

I better not miss another important date tomorrow - my wedding anniversary!
