The New York World’s Fair of 1939–1940 was the first exposition to be based on the future, with an opening slogan of “Dawn of a New Day”, and it allowed all visitors to take a look at “the World of Tomorrow”.

According to the official New York World‘s Fair pamphlet: The eyes of the Fair are on the future — in the sense of presenting a new and clearer view of today in preparation for tomorrow.

To its visitors the Fair will say: “Here are the materials, ideas, and forces at work in our world. These are the tools with which the World of Tomorrow must be made.

Free!
