DAYS OF FUTURE PAST: The 1967 Montreal Expo

Republibot 3.0's picture

Home movies from the '67 Expo in Canada, celebrating that country's centenial.

This was the largest fair to date, and the final one to be a comple unqualified success. Check out all the crazy architecture! We'll be seeing more of this eventually.

This fair has additional significance for SF geeks like us - the semi-abandoned ruins of the fair were eventually featured in three separate SF productions!

First was the Paul Newman/Robert Altman SF Film "Quintet" where Newman trudges through the snow past the ruins of a futuristic city.
