Expo 67 – Montreal Canada – 1967 Expo 67 was the short name of The 1967 Universal and International Exhibition in Montréal. It was technically a World’s fair, but organizers thought that Expo 67 was easier to say and allowed the event to be thematic instead of commercial. This was in contrast to the decidedly commercial1964 [...]
I’m not quite sure where this picture was taken, but I love the detail in it. We have a mountain town of some sort, having a parade. Two mules (one is hidden behind the other,) are being pulled through the streets by a couple of young men. One has a sign saying “Al Gas Al Service 836(?) Bear Lane.” I want to say this is s [...]

Since the other pictures ranged from China to Washington State, it’s hard to determine exactly where it was taken. Please leave a comment below if you have any ideas of the location.
I’m not able to find a lot of information about the “Nudes on Ice” show in Las Vegas. It seems to have been co-Produced by both George Arnold and Bill Moore. It ran from at least 1968 when this photo was taken, and was revived in 1988 for a 12-week show that ended up running 18 months. In that time it seems to have played a [...]
