This is a picture of the symbols of the 1939 World's Fair in Flushing Meadow Park, The Trylon and Perisphere. Unlike the Unisphere of the '64 fair, these structures were torn down soon after the fair ended. Their quasi-sci-fi appearance was typical of the theme of the World's Fair, the future of technology. They really served no purpose other than as a logo of that event.

This is a picture taken at the 1939 World's Fair in Flushing Meadow Park. I don't know what the exhibit was - the people in the picture are my parents.
Dick Miller writes: The exhibit was "Railroads on Parade", with some real locomotives outside (like this one) and a wonderful model railroad inside. The model railroad also included a mountain peak with a working cable car (funicular), and was so extensive that it dwarfed the big one in the Lionel headquarters building.

This picture of Steinway Street was taken during World War II.

--George Lanzaro


This was my Sister and a friend on the day of their first Holy Communion in 1952. It was taken on Shore Boulevard in Astoria Park, showing the Triboro Bridge in the background.

--Barbara Ray


These are my cousins on 14th Street in Astoria, in front of the house where "Kiss of Death" was filmed. The Triboro Bridge is in the background.
