Containing Multitudes Since 2004
You know a nation by its monuments . . .
It's like Bruce McCall had unlimited funds and a time machine.
That's a real beauty. Where was it?
trashsparkle, here's the basic info. It was in the Amusement Zone. It was the world's largest functioning register (although I can't imagine there was a non-functioning one larger) and was designed by Walter Dorwin Teague with Harry Heybeck. The numbers were 2 1/2 feet high and the register itself was 74 feet high. Also, it revolved because, why not?In 1964 they had another cash register pavilion that was just that, a pavilion. Boooooring.
Yeah but which World's Fair was it?
It was the 1939 New York World's Fair. It's themes were "The Dawn of a New Day" and "The World of Tomorrow" hence the series name, "Building a Better Tomorrow."
Not as literal as what you have posted, but here'sa famous building in Denver.
And of course that should be "its" not "it's."
I'm guessing this beat out the Giant Abacus and the Pavilion of Double Entry Bookeeping.
You should've seen the General Ledger Exhibit. One word: Wow.
Now that's what I call a monument to Mammon.
