Suzanne in New Hampshire sent this image of a Railroads on Parade poster from the Fair.
Suzanne's hobby is researching but has not been able to find another poster like this one, nor has she had any success in finding anyone who knows anything about this particular poster.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Ted sent in this photograph of an art-deco lamp. He was told that it came from the 1939 New York World's Fair, but there doesn't seem to any markings on the lame indicating that is actually came from the Fair.
I am not sure where the bulb goes, but looking at the photo, I think a bulb goes inside the top column of the lamp, making it a "night-light" of sorts.
If I get more information on the lamp, I'll post it here. Meanwhile if you reconize this item please send a e-mail to Ted at:
He plans on having it restored so any information would be appreciated.
On the back there is a remnant of a label which is difficult to read but it does identify the New York World's Fair 1939. Also written in black paint on the back is: "cooperation with governments"
