"Gloria Swanson, first Skyride visitor in 1934, wears a broad smile as she gets back to earth after previewing the new World's Fair from the air, atop the 628-foot tower seen in the background.

Just close the aluminum door and presto, it's a nice private drawing room, convenient and homelike even if it was just a Pullman section during the daytime."
