Psychics, a revolving building shaped like a cash register, the “King of Magic” in a fez, ferris wheels and carousels - the World’s Fair had something for everyone. The high-minded themed areas - Transportation, Government, Communications and Business Systems - could not compete for popularity with the “Amusements” area featuring many acts of dancing girls in various scanty costumes. Cyrus Pinkham shot and edited a beautiful 15 min. film on the Fair.
