Video goes for 5 minutes 15 seconds. But the images of the Worlds Fair at the turn of the 20th century is amazing.
bitchute


In the video the guys talk about how 6 months after the worlds fair, they blew it all up with dynamite, and dumped everything into the ground again. We are talking large marble structures that looks like Rome, and with pillars. At every worlds fair with all these marvelous structures, 6 months later they would tear it all down and scrap it. Supposedly they built a 5000 square meter building, that could house over 2000 people in a record 59 days. I mean this is a time of horse and cart. Why would they scrap these marvelous structures after 6 months?

Video is well worth the time.

World's Fair facilities were intended to be 'futuristic' and 'pushing the limits' of the time, and most were not 'complete' structures that could be reused. The point was to push and demonstrate the limits of current and future technology.

Below is an exception from the 1964 World's Fair in New York that was carefully disassembled and relocated to Wisconsin, where it is still used by the company that sponsored the exhibit, is still open to the public, and is STILL 'futuristic' in many ways.



I've toured this 'futuristic marvel' from the 60s, and highly recommend it to anyone near SE Wisconsin.

Thank you for fixing this and your other thread's link.

I enjoyed the video but not the audio conspiracy theory commentary that goes along with it.

How they did it is easily explained.
1: The buildings were not built to last.
2: There were plenty of working people available to put on these construction projects.
3: They were torn down because no. 1.

Modern construction labor cannot be compared to what was 100 years ago. Then, everything was hand made in place using hand tools. They put as many people on the project to make it happen as fast as they wanted it.

The construction itself just had to look good for a while so they did not have to build anything to last. This is very much like how a movie set is made. Looks like a metal spaceship interior on film, is painted plywood in reality.

The commentary does not do the video justice and distracts form a nice historical film.

Not everything was destroyed every time...
15 Legendary World's Fair Leftovers

The old conspiracy theory is that the World Fairs were held to re-introduce (as new) old technology that had been destroyed or forgotten after the mud-floods of the 1800's and the fall of Tartaria.

Honestly it all just looks so fantastic, and well built, well crafted. Using marble too. It blows my mind that they would spend like 2 years building these marvelous looking things, just to dump them 2 days or 6 months later.

Go the Knoxville, TN. Visit World’s Fair Park from 1982. The promise was there to keep some of it as a museum. By 1989 when I attended UT the place was a mess. Quite frankly it may have been the inspiration for After Humans (or mankind or whatever the series was called).

And yes, I was there at the fair in 1982 and it was indeed something extraordinary in a time before the internet. Biggest disappointment was China’s part of The Great Wall exhibit, which despite lots of pictures leading up to it was just a few bricks under plexiglass.

So I've heard, but I haven't found a lot of evidence for it. Not that I've spent a lot of time on it. If you have any links, it would be appreciated.

Are you certain it was all marble? There are techniques similar to applying stuccko that can fool a lot of people. They might have used a thin layer of marble where it would be touched than just fake the rest for show.

If you build temporary you wouldn't need the big machines and explosives to dismantle the structure.

To the posters taking other world fairs as example for how they saved incredible structures, find an example between 1850 and 1900 to underline your point...

Just look at the cristal palace, they built in 1851 for the great exposition in England. Temporary structure that got relocated and after a fire had to be dismantled with explosives... I mean seriously, the architect went a little of the rails building a temporal structure... , but then there is more with the whole inconsistency of plans that are only sketches, and an incredible time frame to build such an extravagant structure...

It's a weird rabbit hole...

I highly recommend the Parthenon in Nashville. It's a stunning full size replica.

I found a book at Internet Archive .
It's 498 pages of photos showing the
1904 St. Louis World's Fair.

It wasn't all "high tech" There were native
peoples from all over the world there.

Get ready for the next Worlds Fair, it's gonna be in an Arabian country. They've bought their way into all the other World events and this is no different.

I was a kid in Montreal during Expo 67. They created a sperate island in the St. Laurence River for it and it was really amazing to have been a part of it. I remember going several times with family and friends and I learned a lot about the world with each country having a pavilion. I believe quite a bit of it is still around today.

The Eifel tower should be called koechlin tower anyways, a rabit hole in itself
