    Nice find! In my "old radio obsessions" set,I have a pic of the '34 World's Fair guide which my father-in-law attended in Chicago.It has the pull-out map and I even have the original tickets-adults 50 cents and children 25 cents.Its a fascinating book!

    Such an iconic symbol! When we did posters back then in Art class, I don't think Art Deco was even a word. A nostalgic and marvellous poster, Jim!

    and even its posters showed great style.

    shirley elliott Shirley, I should have been more clear when I made my statement. The term "Art Deco" was coined in 1966 at an exposition of some type in Paris. The exposition was about style in the late 1920's through the early 1940's. ;-)

    trecrowns - and lol! I should not have detoured into "timeframes" after your welcome "1966", Kathy! I was just whining again about how fast time flies! Instead of 46 years ago, it seems more like 30!!

    shirley elliott 1966 seems more like 30 years ago to me, too! LOL!
