Given first is a short history of previous fairs with some pictures, including photos of La Tour Eiffel (The Eiffel Tower) in various stages of construction for The 1889 Paris Universal Exposition. The next section shows completed models of various Expo 67 pavilions as they expected them to look. The final section gives the foreign visitor information about Canada and Montreal (the host city) including economic, population, transport. etc. Tourist tips are given along with typical prices for accommodation, food, gratuities, and so on. *(Recommended. It's interesting to compare this with the actual outcome; the model pictures being most interesting. This book was published before much of Expo was built and thus has information changed by opening day. However, this is to be expected, as you will come to realize from books published before or during the planning stages of something as large as a World's Fair.) MONTREAL EXPO 67 (Continued) Published by: La Photolith L. Delaporte France For: Banque National de Paris ________ REMEMBER EXPO (1968) "A Pictorial Record" By Robert Fulford. Picture book with text. * (Recommended. Although smaller and with far fewer pages than "Expo 67 Montreal Canada" - reviewed earlier, it compares favourably. There is a fabulous full-color, aerial, photo on pages 6 & 7 that gives an excellent over view of this fair. The book then continues with black & white and color images of this famous exposition. A detriment to those looking for a reference book is the lack of an index.)
