1939 Milton Bradley, Going To The World's Fair Game

One of the many souvenir items promoting the 1939 New York World's Fair was this board game produced by Milton Bradley. Although handled it is complete and looks like it was never played with.

The colorful box cover highlights the Fair's center attraction; the Trylon and Perisphere. The lower right corner is copyrighted with "N.Y.W.F". The manufacturer's name was printed on the lower left corner. The front cover designs carry over to the front and rear aprons. The box bottom edges (including the underside edges) are lined with textured red paper. The same textured material was used to cover the reverse side of the game board.

Included is the original 18½"x 18" game board showing many of the Fair attractions, a box of silver coins in denominations of 5¢ (Teddy Roosevelt), 10¢ (Jefferson), 25¢ (Washington), and 50¢ (Lincoln) (all stamped aluminum on cardboard), 4 colored wooden player pieces, a lead weighted metal spinner, a pair of Bakelite dice, instructions, and "attractions" cards.

It has all of its original inserts including the two large "Going to the World's Fair" panels separated by a center box. This box holds the separate box of coins and playing pieces. The original cellophane which sealed the center box is still in place although the left side pulled away from the edge due to age shrinkage.
