TRIBUTE TO TRANSPORTATION

FROM THE WHEEL TO THE ROCKET, the story of locomotion can be traced in the Fair's Transportation Area. But the major emphasis is on the automobile -- past, present and future -- which is no surprise, inasmuch as the area's (and Fair's) three largest tenants are Chrysler, Ford and General Motors. Here, from the Avenue of Automation, we see Chrysler's engineering island, one of five that are set in a man-made lake. Beyond is the "crown roast" atop Ford's exhibit.
