I didn't know Esther well. She was a friend of friends. After she passed away, there was a box filled with snapshots she'd taken. Many were recognizable theatre celebs of long ago. Other photos were of her and others. Some photos had inscriptions on the reverse, which I've noted. Others had nothing. This box was destined for the trash bin. I saved it.

"NY World's Fair-1959"

This is the 1939 (continued in 1940) World's Fair in NY, rather than 1959.

These are cool pics!

thanks! i've titled this photo "NY World's Fair-1959" because esther had. that's what she wrote on the back of the photo. maybe it was the '39 fair, but esther didn't make it there until '59? could that be?
