The World of Tomorrow: 1939 New York World’s Fair


The eyes of the Fair are on the future — not in the sense of peering toward the unknown nor attempting to foretell the events of tomorrow and the shape of things to come, but in the sense of presenting a new and clearer view of today in preparation for tomorrow; a view of the forces and ideas that prevail as well as the machines.

From the official 1939 New York World’s Fair pamphlet.
