The 1984 Louisiana World Exposition was a World's Fair held in New Orleans, United States. It was held 100 years after the city's earlier World's Fair, the World Cotton Centennial in 1884. It opened on Saturday, May 12, 1984 and ended on Sunday, November 11, 1984. Its theme was "The World of Rivers—Fresh Waters as a Source of Life."
An iconic symbol of the Crescent City (made in Wabash, Illinois. Hmmm...). Good luck still finding these. These covers are hard to find around the city because of their symolism, people have stolen them for years.
World Trade Mart. When I was in High School, I used to frequently take the bus downtown. Many times I'd end up here, where I could visit foreign embassies, travel agencies, and dream pleasant dreams of travel. That little "bump" on the roof is/was/? a rotating restaurant.
