Step back into 1939 with this collection of four unused New York World's Fair linen postcards. Artistic scenes include: (1) The Fountain Display of Consolidated Edison Co. Building shadowed by the Trylon and Perisphere; (2) A Bird's Eye View over Constitution Mall in 1940; (3) The sculptured figure of Walt Whitman titled "The Open Road" with the Perisphere in the background; and (4) The Perisphere itself which shows fair-goers on the walkway around it which led to the Democracity which was an exhibit inside the Perisphere.
Each card is marked on the back as `New York World's Fair Officially Licensed." The date is written on one of the cards by my great-uncle who lived in Baltimore at the time. They measure 3-1/2 x 5-1/2 and designed by C. T. Art. Colortone. Reg. U.S. Patent Ofc. Made By Curtteich & Co. and printed by the Union News Co. with their logo.
