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.

This Date in History - April 21, 1965
The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair was just starting for the second season when this shot was taken. It's outside the Missouri Pavilion, and they're raising a flag to celebrate the 1964 World Series win by the St. Louis Cardinals. Imagine how grating that must have been to the New York crowd - especially as the Yankees had been the losing team!
