1939 anonymous United States of America Giclee Print

In April of 1939 the New York World's Fair, Themed 'Building The World of Tomorrow,' opened on what was once a marshy wasteland in Flushing Meadows, just east of the great metropolis. From its inception to its closing ceremonies, the Fair promoted one of the last great metanarratives of the Machine Age: the unqualified belief in science and technology as a means to economic prosperity and personal freedom.

1933 Hernando Villa Giclee Art Print United States of America

Strong man holding up city above his head. In addition to advertising rail destinations-chiefly in the Southwest-the Santa Fe took opportunistic advantage of events along its routes where Americans were likely to be heading. Notable among these were the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles and the following year, the World's Fair in Chicago-with Villa as poster designer for both. Here, his triumphant representation of Progress holds up a miniaturized Chicago skyline, with the city winking, star-like, on a globe behind.

From its inception to its closing ceremonies, the Fair promoted one of the last great metanarratives of the Machine Age: the unqualified belief in science and technology as a means to economic prosperity and personal freedom. Wedged between the greatest economic disaster in America and the growing international tension that would result in World War II, The World of Tomorrow was a much-needed antidote to the depression and confusion of the times. It provided the one saving grace which all of America needed - it provided hope. See 1939 the New York World's Fair Giclee Art Print enlarged or framed.

1900 Francois Flameng France Giclee Exposition Art Print

This is a fine art giclee print of a vintage exposition poster featuring a Curvaceous woman leaning against a camera while holding a cane. This installation at the 1900 Paris World's Fai was truly an embarrassment of diversionary riches, with the wide range of turn-of-the-century entertainment luminaries recorded in early celluloid - most likely little more than a rapid-fire slide presentation - creating quite the little extravaganza.Phone-Cinema-Theatre/Exposition See 1900 Francois Flameng France Giclee Exposition Art Print enlarged or framed.

1939 Nembhard N. Culin United States of America Giclee Print

The last worlds fair before the outbreak of hostilities in Europe was this one in New York, with its famous 'trylon and sphere' symbol, presented here in a most imaginative perspective. The 'trylon,' a 700-foot triangular tower, served as the Fair’s beacon and broadcasting aerial. The 200-foot sphere had a viewing platform suspended in its center from which visitors saw a panorama of “the world of tomorrow.” See 1939 Nembhard N. Culin United States of America Giclee Print enlarged or framed.

There is perhaps no circus more famous than the Barnum & Bailey combination, which was purchased from the Ringling Brothers in 1907 and was originally two separate competing circuses owned by P.T. Barnum and James Anthony Bailey ? who decided to team up and form one act. They merged in 1919 and were very successful in vintage times until the Great Depression caused difficulties, along with the inventions of automobiles, television and other means of entertainment. The novelty had worn off, although the circus still runs today in a different format. The Adams Brothers also ran a popular International Circus, starring polar bear actors drawing cheers and laughter at their hilarious acts.
