"You’ll love Walt Disney’s Magic Touch at General Electric Progressland!"
Print ad, New York World’s Fair, 1964.
This print ad from 1964 shows off Walt Disney, a rare model Progressland Pavilion, and, auspiciously providing a flashy background, the Kaleidoscope Screens that adorned the walls of the Carousel Theater. Photos of these screens are rare… but a few interesting shots of them will show up here within the week.
Also interesting is the model itself. Only several were produced, and despite being one of Disney’s more iconic (and homegrown) structures at the fair, most are lost. One turned up on eBay, of all places, some years back, and sold for over 5000 dollars.
The ad also details art from Medallion City and the Skydome Spectacular, other components of the pavilion’s show.
