Postcard courtesy of Bob Catania

The General Electric Building at the New York World’s Fair 1939. The structure, which stands in a 68,319 square foot plot, features three general sections: one devoted to product display: one having a “house of magic” auditorium: and Steinmetz Hall, in which 10 million volts of artificial lightning is generated and discharged in spectacular fashion for Fair visitors. The architects are Voorhees, Gmelin and Walker, and Harrison and Fouihoux.
