This is a brochure produced in 1963 to stimulate interest in the General Motors-sponsored, 'Futurama
' exhibit at the 1964/5 New York World's Fair.
It was actually Futurama II, an updated version of the popular 'Futurama' ride and exhibit at the 1939/40 event. It promised visitors a "ride into tomorrow"
and portrayed what life would be like in 2004. I love the artists impressions of the exhibits and rides - I wonder if it actually looked this way when completed??
I found this on the wonderful Kickcan and Conkers
, but if you fancy it for your ephemera collection it can be bought over at PaperHistory
