The WikiGod places the first (of seventy-odd) international exhibitions to be held at the Bari Fairgrounds in 1930.

I'm no expert in fashion or cars, but I'm inclined to date these cards as from close to exhibition #1.

OTOH, the war put many aspects of life in Europe on hold, so postcards from the 1940s & 1950s sometimes contain chronologically misleading artifacts ... even the occasional zoot suit :)

Q/ What is that large, bladed object on the top/back of that wannabe space ship?

Cheers,

5th postcard, is that a cannon with a propellor, driven by two robots?

Maybe, if so, flames or fire from the cannon?

Or rocket proposed?


All the walking invloved tires me to look at now. ha. Amazing thou as it is at the time though.

Yeah, these are definitely from the early '30s. Interesting that they would use Bari as a location for an international expo. Southern Italy was a notoriously poor area, particularly after the war.
