    Not really a lost attraction, but a great photo...

    Ok, everyone, let's take it from the top:"It's a small world after all!" -

    In this 1965 photograph, the now-classic Walt Disney World attraction "it's a small world" is shown in its infancy, when it entertained Guests of all ages in support of UNICEF at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair.

    Where did you get that? If you tell me you took it, I will never believe another word you say. You were just a gleam in your daddy's eye in 1964-1965.

    It is a really neat picture though. I remember seeing "it's a small world" when I was about 6 or 7. Long before there was a park in Florida. In fact I remember having a coloring book (I was 11 or 12) promoting the park in Florida, gearing us all up for the Grand Opening. (Edit: Dang! I wish I still had that book!)

    I hope you are all really bad at math.

    No singing here but I hear a little humming in the distance! I can do math with a calculator but I know better than to add any woman's age!

    I am just glad that the clothing styles have changed! That is a cool picture.

    I'll echo Mrs. IWBMinnie "where did you get that Lou?" Is that from Bill Cotters CD of 64-65 NYWF photos?

    http://www.billcotter.com/nywf/index.htm

    If it is from something else like that, other than Bills, give us a link if theres a site promoting the item.
    I have a couple of postcards with views of the 64-65 NYWF pavilions, including IASW but not from this angle. Nifty view!

    Brian,

    Not sure where the photo originated from, as a reader had emailed me and sent it to me a while back, as she was talking about how she at been at the Fair, etc.

    cool, perhaps it is a personal family photo, quite a well composed one if it is, it looks like it would have made a good post card.
