Beautiful collection of photos, as usual! Loved the inflight one - on the way to the 64 NY World's Fair. I grew up in New Jersey, and went to the Fair many times - still have fond memories of seeing the Pieta, and "cooking" a hot dog, and hamburger in one minute, in an unheard of microwave oven!! Also the General Electric Pavilion with the various periods of homes, and their use of electricity. I liked the 1920's kitchen the best!
The Cadillac "office" was also fun. The 1967-68 Chrysler Imperials also could be outfitted with onboard "Mobile Director" package for $597.40 extra. It included a passenger seat that turned to face the rear, and a work desk for of course - a typewriter!!
What fun! Thanks as always

Great collection. I like the air station. The radios and the oak typewriter desks are really nice.
