Description:
Title from recto. | "16W"--recto. | "9A-H305"--recto. | "Lic. by N.Y.W.F. 1939--K-1877"--verso. | 1 postcard, untraveled, with a C.T. Art Colortone illustration of the General Motors exhibition buildings. | "In keeping with the World's Fair theme of 'Building the World of Tomorrow,' the General Motors Exhibit presents a conception of future motor traffic regulations and super-highways, 'Highways and Horizons.' By means of a continuous escalator, visitors seated in comfortable moving chairs travel over the super-highways of tomorrow. The tour is climaxed by a full-size street intersection, showing the architecture, motor traffic and pedestrian facilities of the future. Norman Bel Geddes is the designer, and the architect is Albert Kahn, Inc."--verso. | English. | Wolfsonian Library display: Streamlined: From Airplanes to Architecture, April 15, 2009-July 15, 2009, (XC1991.170.539), postcard.
