Throwback Thursday " 1939 World's Fair"

Four of Billy Rose's 'Aquabelles' stage a fashion show of the past, present and future bathing suit styles at the New York World's Fair on July 4, 1939

I am not sure how comfortable these suits would have been, but they are quite interesting! I love the striped socks! The 1939–40 New York World's Fair, which covered the 1,216 acres of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, was the second most expansive American world's fair of all time, exceeded only by St. Louis's Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904. It actually took place where the US Open tennis tournament is now played in Corona Park. The fair opened April 30, 1939 and closed October 31, 1940.
