The pictures show a view of all (17) 1939 - 1940 New York World's Fair Advertising and Souvenir Paper Items in this lot. The ''Railroads of The New York World's Fair 1939'' brochure that is in the first picture is opened and shown in the second and third pictures. It has an image of the exhibit building, a nice colorful map, the railroading exhibit inside and the story with much information including:

RAILROADS AT THE NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR 1939
RAILROADS AT WORK
BUILDING THE RAILROAD
RAILROADS ON PARADE

There are (2) tickets or stubs. One is for ''Exposition Greyhound, Inc.'' for a ''Bus Sightseeing Trip through the grounds of The New York World's Fair 1939''. The other ticket is from ''Billy Rose's Aquacade''. They are attached to a scrap book paper that reads:

Went to World's Fair Week of September 18th (1939)

There is a ''New at The ''Forty'' Fair'' magazine page with three sepia images from the General Electric Exhibit. One is of the twin lightning bolts display, one of the ''Tatterman Marionettes - Mrs. Cinderella''. The third image is a scene from the livingroom of the ''Phantom House''.

All of the other items in this lot are black & white photographs. Some were taken by visitors and others were commercially produced as souvenirs. (2) are inside the Pan American Airways Building. They both show a 3-1/4 ton Earth globe. One also has a sign inside for flights to Havana, Cuba and Nassau. That one also pictures a nice lollipop type weight scale. Two photos at the top and one at the bottom are unmarked. The rest are marked as follows:

DISTILLED SPIRITS EXHIBIT BUILDING NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR
PRESS AND PROMOTION BUILDING NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR
MAISON COTY NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR
UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT BUILDING NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR
AVIATION BUILDING NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR
COMMUNICATIONS BUILDING NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR
CONSTITUTION MALL NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR
''SPEED'' (statue) N.Y.W.F. - U&U

All of these items for one price! To judge the sizes the closed Railroads brochure measures 3-3/4'' x 8-3/4''. These items appears to be in excellent to mint condition as pictured. The bottom right photo has a melted rubber band stuck to it and the magazine pictures page has a center fold.
