The 1939 New York World’s Fair in Queens attracted over 44 million visitors to Flushing Meadows — Corona Park with its futuristic theme, exhibits and structures.

With such a large fair covering such a large area, merchandise was created with maps on them to help people get around, like this cool combination map and walking cane created by illustrator Tony Sarg.
