NY World's Fair 1964-1965

Taken in the years 1964 and 1965, this is a set of 160 70mm slides. This is a project to scan the complete set, which will take a good deal of time.
Camera - Rolleiflex T
Film - High Speed Ektachrome
Exposure - not recorded
Scanner - Microtek ScanMaker 5900

Finally nearing the end of the project. I estimate about 20 or 30 more slides to scan

    Curious about pervious pic (which I could not open the "comment" offer). While most of your pics are still color correct, that one and a few others have appparently lost some of the sharpness. So far, most of my old pics have held up, going back to 1950, and in our historical society, we have a 1938 or 39 Kodachrome still not bad) Many of my early Ektachrome went sepia and useless, but Kodak assured me that the problem has been corrected.
    ron (and I enjoyed looking at your view of the worlds fair. Some day I may get to copying some of my 35,000 slides! I have a HP slide copier, but can't use it with current Windows programs!)
    This is picture number 46. Are you referring to number 45 as the previous picture? I had no trouble opening the comment box. All I did was click on the comment button, then scroll down a bit.

    Is this what I see when I travel down 95 heading to Jersey???


    The New York Worlds Fair was only during the summer months of 1964 and 1965. It was located in Flushing Meadow Park in Queens New York, right next to Shea Stadium. This Unisphere was the symbol of the Fair and is one of the very few remaining structures.

    Ok, yes I have seen it then (maybe when I was at Shea Stadium)
