21st Century Fair Memorabilia
I have been told that the 1939-1940 World's Fair was the most merchandised event in history. The amazing thing is that many people who love the Fair still create items that pay tribute to this piece of history.
Mr. Jackie Collins, a Fair memorabilia collector and Screen Printer created several 1939 NY World's Fair placemats for his personal use.
The placemat measures 12" x 16" and is printed on a clear substrate. (Please excuse my poor photography.)
Mr. Collins called me mid-July and told me about his project. He also stated that he was sending one of the placemats to show his appreciation for this website and tribute to the World's Fair.
I am having the placemat framed and it will hang in my home-office where I can admire it every day. Thank you Jackie.
