Coca-Cola Pavilion

The Coca-Cola Pavilion
The Coca-cola Tower, rising from the court of this pavilion, features the world's largest and finest electronic carillon. The pavilion also features a unique, free "Global Holiday'" the U.S.O. Lounge and the American Radio Relay League.

Unused post card from the 1964-65 World's Fair in New York. I found very little information about the Pavilion, and no photographs of the actual building. The carillon was moved to Stone Mountain Park in Atlanta, Georgia.

Thanks for the memory!

My father, Thomas E. Roberts, was one of the carillonneurs who played that magnificent carillon during the New York World's Fair.

I was nine years old that summer -- we spent the entire summer in New York and I got to start school late (bonus) when we returned to Oregon.

I find it odd that I have more memories of the Seattle World's Fair in 1962 when I was only seven -- my dad played the carillon at the base of the Space Needle that summer...

But I DO have a tone of great memories from the summer of '64 in New York!

Thanks again!
