The team at historical website Knowol recently restored this excellent vintage map from the 1939-1940 New York World's Fair in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

The NYWF of 1939–1940 was the first exposition to be based on the future, with an opening slogan of “Dawn of a New Day”, allowing visitors to look at “the world of tomorrow”. This poster provides exactly the opposite, a glimpse back in time that allows you to imagine Flushing Meadows–Corona Park as it looked when millions came to explore the World’s Fair.

Check out their site if you are interested in purchasing a full size replica print of the poster.
