SINCLAIR GOES TO THE FAIR

The vital role that Sinclair and its 25,000 independent Dealers play in serving America's growing need for petroleum products is the story that Sinclair is telling visitors to the New York World's Fair.
 
This story is being told in many ways. Visitors to Sinclair Dinoland step back in time to a prehistoric world when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Here they see mighty Brontosaurus - symbol of Sinclair - and eight other dinosaurs which dramatize the age and quality of crude oils from which Sinclair Petroleum Products are made. These crudes were mellowing in the earth millions of years ago when dinosaurs lived.
 
An interior exhibit relates another important phase of the Sinclair story. It includes three dioramas. One depicts the evolution of the earth from earliest forms of life up to the time of the dinosaurs. Another dramatizes
how Sinclair products are used to provide power and energy for our complex transportation system; and a third describes the contributions that Sinclair will make to the "World of Tomorrow."
 
Sinclair Dealers will appreciate the value of the two modern Sinclair Stations at the Fair, and the favorable impression they create for Sinclair Dealers everywhere. The World's Fair Marina is equally impressive. It's one of the largest marinas in the world, and supplies Sinclair Products to Fair visitors who come by boat.
 
These are some of the impressions millions of motorists will get of Sinclair when they visit the Fair. You'll benefit, too, because these people will have greater confidence in the Sinclair Products and services available at their local Sinclair station.
In the months to come, millions of visitors to the New York World's Fair will see Sinclair Dinoland. The unique exhibit is conveniently located in the Fair's Transportation Area. It overlooks Grand Central Parkway in Queens.
