“Tourist” Trailer for Youngsters Is Towed by a Tricycle (Oct, 1938)
For some reason this reminds me of a David Lynch film…
“Tourist” Trailer for Youngsters Is Towed by a Tricycle
Touring the seashore at Venice, Calif., is a streamline trailer towed by a streamline tricycle. Tiny as it is, the miniature trailer is big enough for two little girls to “keep house” in as they play on the beach. Their grandfather built the two-wheel trailer.
Sensational THRILL RIDES Invented for N.Y. World Fair (Apr, 1939)
“one smart inventor has devised a ship that takes passengers to Venus, which is part of the way to the moon”
Wow, I had no idea Venus was so close!
And don’t forget: “These are no sissy rides, and if it’s a thrill you want, you’ll get it at the New York World’s Fair!”
Sensational THRILL RIDES Invented for N.Y. World Fair
HOW would you like to experience the thrill of a parachute jumpâ€” without the accompanying dangers of the ‘chute failing to open, of being blown out to sea or of landing in a tree? Well, that thrill will be yours if you are one of the lucky 60,000,000 expected to visit the New York World’s Fair after it opens on April 30. As a matter of fact, a safe parachute jump will be only one of the many sensations ingenious engineers have invented for the Fair visitor’s amusement. If the ‘chute jump seems tame, try the aerial ship which the rider can pilot himself. It’s safe, of course, because a cable keeps the ship anchored to a revolving pole, but you can turn or stall in a steep climb or experience the sensation of a power dive, if you are up to it.
Inventors Turn to Toys (Dec, 1928)
I particularly like the cow on the second page. You can fill it up with milk and um… milk it.
