OK, Where is my rocket powered flying car? All the Popular Science, Mechanix Illustrated and like magazines from the 40's and 50's promised me I would have a jet pack to get to work and I am still waiting dammit!
The 1939 Worlds Fair in New York was no exception. All the exhibitors were ready to give everyone a crystal ball view into the future.
General Motors was at the forefront with a huge pavillion and show called Futurama.
I found this souvenier booklet and lapel pin this weekend. It has been added to my 1939 Mercury dime bank in my smalls case.
Thought you might enjoy seeing it.
