I want to keep a record of world fair stuff I come across. Note to self: Lomax and his original plans for the world fair; Frankie and the Savoy dancers at the world fair; the Hot Mikado; Harry James’ live transcripts from the world fair; that video of women dancing together at the world fair; that video of the Savoy dancers dancing at the world fair; Frankie’s stories about how working at the world fair was pretty awful (and NB – find out about how this might have dovetailed with the way Lomax’s original plans were fucked over and changed by a third party).
