When I came across this video of the 1939 New York World’s Fair, it reminded me of an excellent resource: the digital archives of the New York Public Library. Both of the photos above are from the archives, and are just two of the thousands and thousands that relate the fair. The fair invited to folks to wander around the “world of tomorrow” so it isn’t surprising the archive is packed full of the future from the past.
