This was apparently a press kit for the 'Exporama' traveling exhibit that went around the US and Canada to promote the Expo '67 Worlds Fair in Montreal.

Captions from the included press release.

WOW... ok, this is awesome. i have a feeling im going to be staying up later than i intended to tonight reading about all of this on wiki...

This is awesome. I'm enjoying the unusual mix of content you're sharing. I particularly like the British Pavillion's unfinished tower. What an eerily accruate methaphor for the decades that were to follow.

It is incredible how much printing technology seems to have longed behind construction technology. i love these index cards, imagining them kept in deep card file drawers.

great post!

Franny Wentzel: 14th Jan 2009 - 00:59 GMT

I hate to disillusion you, but the captions came from a typewritten two-page press release included with the photographs - note the staple still attached to page one.

Built two years before my birth in 1969, many of the Expo 67 buildings still stood for decades afterwards. I recall it was called Man and His World when I saw the Expo site as a child in the 1970's.

I was on that site again last year, for the festival.

All that remains now is the geodesic dome (minus its coating, which burnt off in a fire) and the Quebec and French pavillions, which have since been converted into the .

The Bigger E: 7th Sep 2009 - 12:35 GMT

Thanks for the great memories. My parents and I had season passes to Expo in 1967 -- I was pretty young.

I used to love the greasy pizza slices that you could get at La Ronde...yummy!

There is also still the statue that everyone dances underneath of for Piknik Electronique as well as some ruins of the area with the stage where they would give presentations. Probably hard to see now because of the snow but it's neat to go under the de la Concord bridge in the summer and stand on the stage that countless world leaders and celebrities probably stood on years before!

I went quite a few times with my aunt. I was only 6, but can still recall the sights and sounds of Expo 67....
