Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
|The Trylon & the Perisphere were the symbols of the fair.|
The 1939 - 40 Worlds’ Fair was held in New York City. The theme was ‘Building the World of Tomorrow.’ My mother, Alberta Joy Gardner, went to the fair on more than one occasion. Her mother and her mother’s sisters took her to see the exhibits. She was amazed by everything she saw there. Twenty five years later she took my brothers and I to see the ‘Peace Through Understanding’ World’s Fair in her old home, New York City. We were just as enchanted by the exhibits and rides and the vision of the future as she had been.
