Meet me at the Fair. Or else! Get my drift?
The U.S. Space Park was a veritable forest of rockets. Most rockets don't have cables keeping them earthbound, but we don't want one to fall over and flatten a fairgoer.
Well, I'm not entirely sure what we are looking at here! Clearly it is the interior of some sort of craft... but is it from a space capsule? Or perhaps the X-15 plane that was on display? Help!
Here's an odd one; there was a "New England States" pavilion, where you would find this country store, "... complete with potbellied stove and cracker barrel, (it) sells New England products and souvenirs. The restaurant features seafood, chicken, Blueberry Slump and Apple Grunt." Apple Grunt?
Eastern Airlines wasn't the oooooonly way to fly. That was Western Airlines. Sounds like the Eastern Airlines building was kind a snooze, but a useful snooze! There was a lounge for weary travelers, as well as checkin facilities. If I could go back in time, I would spend all my time in this building!
