One of my favorite 1939 New York World's Fair photos

I just love this shot from the 1939-1940 New York World's Fair. I've seen a lot of pictures from that fair, but to me there's something special about it.

Here's the caption I used in my book on the fair: The fair offered some of the finest meals in the New York area, especially in the foreign pavilions. Sometimes, though, the best food experience of all was an ice cream cone. There were more than 200 snack bars and concession stands for the budget conscious, the young at heart, and those in a rush to see more of the fair.

I hope those girls enjoyed their ice cream, as well as the rest of the fair.
