If there was a high point for Space Age excitement about all things futuristic and shiny, it might well have been the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, at which we would be promised such great things as the Bubbleator Time Machine. Women dressed in skimpy outer space outfits posed in the Girls of the Galaxy revue, a monorail shook Seattle, and Washington State's blue laws were repealed.
The Seattle Channel has a great video which shows all of the wonders of the 1962 World's Fair. Check it out below.
