I found one of these in an attic box and was immediately enthralled. The colors are amazing!!! I would love to have the whole series, is there any way I can find out more about these Post-cards? I was just wondering. Because if there are hundreds of these, I don't know if I could ever acquire them ALL, but....I'd like to know if it is possible before I have my Dream Crushed. I would like to frame & display them in my up-stair hall, I'd like to know what I'm getting into first before I commit.

    I like the parachute towers.

    It reminds me of the Airborne School jump towers at FT Benning.

    In fact, I believe that the Airborne School Towers have some sort of connection to the World's Fair Towers (modeled after or made by the same Company)-- I cannot recall the exact connection right now, but appreciate the "trip down memory lane"!

    Thanks for sharing,

    Scott

    There were many images made of this sensational World's Fair, and I have seen a lot of postcards from when I collected postcards, Try looking up this:
