On Sunday April 30, 1939, the New York World’s Fair opened just east of New York City in Flushing Meadows, Queens.

The Fair’s established theme, “Building The World of Tomorrow”, heralded the optimism of innovation and international cooperation, but its true emphasis was on new and exciting consumer products – many seen for the first time at the Fair by its 45 million visitors.
