The New York World’s Fair ran for two six-months seasons, from April 22 to October 18, 1964 and April 21 to October 17, 1965. More than 51 million people visited the 646-acre grounds in Flushing Meadow Park, Queens. There were 140 pavilions and 110 restaurants representing 80 nations and 24 U.S. states. Among the highlights were General Motors’ “Futurama” exhibit, Sinclair Oil’s “Dinoland,” Ford Motors’ “Magic Skyway” ride and Pepsi-Cola’s Disney-designed attraction, “It’s A Small World.” At the Vatican pavilion, Michelangelo’s “Pieta” was on display and nearby Shea Stadium (seen in the background of the photo below), home of the New York Mets, opened five days before the Fair on April 17, 1964.

Previously in the Timeline series, we discussed Trixie’s favorite stuffed companion, often referred to as “Mr. Ted.” Here is the link to that post: http://hiandlois.com/2017/03/03/timeline-1961-part-3/

In this episode Trixie reviews her past adventures with teddy, but since she is still a baby, these stories only go back about a year. Her memories are contained, of course, in “cumulous thought balloons.” Narration is provided by her internal voice.

This classic Sunday page from 1964 shows Lois Flagston on a trip to town. She is dressed in an attractive red dress with pearls, white gloves and a stylish hat. Her friend Millie admires her for looking so fresh and calm while planning a large lunch party at the same time her home is being renovated. With Hi’s help, Lois is regarded by her peers as a super capable suburban housewife.
