World’s Fair 1964 photos and highlights

The 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair sought to capture the zeitgeist of the time. While showcasing elaborate visions of tomorrow, as well as inventions such as the video phone and the Belgian waffle, the fair also served to highlight car culture and the Space Age. And with a theme of “Peace Through Understanding” — and several countries participating — it also reflected Cold War anxieties of the time.
