These photos were taken by my great-grandmother during her trip to the New York World's Fair in 1964. More than 51 million people attended the Fair, which was a showcase of mid-century American culture and technology. I have more photos of the Fair itself, so I'll try to share those soon. I liked these because they showed some great views of New York City.

To go along with these images, I found this blog post about the World Trade Center that was written in Poplar Science in April 1964. 

Happy 4th of July!
