Winter Wonderland

The New York World’s Fair opened in April, 1939. The event, located in Flushing, New York, offered a wide variety of attractions for visitors. Below is a brief clip of the Ice Skating exhibit.

A number of these skater later worked for Sonja Henie in her ice show at Rockefeller Center, and appear in the pages of “River of January: Figure Eight.”



Nearly all of these girls moved over to Center Theater in Midtown, premiering “It Happens On Ice,” in October, 1941.

For more of the story read River of January: Figure Eight, and book one of the series, River of January.
