1939 NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR CAMP GEORGE WASHINGTON PHOTO ALBUM

Item #264

7" x 11" photo album with a suede decorated cover which says "Photo-Log, Camp George Washington, N.Y. World's Fair." Inside there are 85 snapshots, mostly from the fair, with some military snaps, a photo of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and a few of Jazz drummer Gene Krupa. I believe this album is when FDR opened the fair and perhaps a few days after, though only a few are identified. Regarding the Camp George Washington aspect, the American Military sent contingents from the army, navy, and marines to the fair, where they stayed in a display dubbed "Camp George Washington." Fifty members from each service were there at a time to provide demonstrations of military hardware. They also held well-attended parades through the fairgrounds each day.
The leather cord that binds the album is disintegrating, several photos are loose from the page and some are missing. Still quite an intimate look at the fair from a military aspect.

Price: $450.00
