The Trylon & Perisphere and the Court of Communications, seen through the twin 160 foot pylons which stood in front of the Hall of Communications.
The Statue of Washington and the crowd assembled to welcome the King and Queen of Great Britain.
An early view of the base of the Perisphere. Support columns were covered with mirrors and a ring of fountains surrounded the base to give the illusion the Perishpere was floating. As shown here, at first the illusion didn't work, then additional fountains were added and pressure increased, which achieved the desired goal. (lower left)
The Helicline and part of the Perisphere seen from a tiny window at the top of the Trylon.
