Recently I was pleased as punch to acquire a few more snapshots to add to my small (but growing!) collection of 1939 World’s Fair photos! I am not too sure where the first two were taken, but the last one hails from the Electric Building. I was able to figure this out by magnifying the lettering at the top left-hand section of the photo. Because I think this is really neat (and I like to share neat things) follows is a slide show of my collection to date. Enjoy!

As I mentioned previously today I took an afternoon sojourn in Queens. Truth be told, I was not in “in the zone”. Some days I am more photographically-inclined than others. But I did have my moments— such as the above image. It has a certain Edward Hopper quality I kind of like. What was even more interesting is what I stumbled upon— quite literally— immediately after taking said photo.
A motel fit for a queen— albeit one on a tight schedule. I told the Mister this is where I want to spend our fourth wedding anniversary. He quipped that he was nonplussed that they don’t charge by the quarter hour. So it goes. Without further ado here are some shots from today’s sojourn around Queens. Enjoy!
