60 Rare Historical Photos That You Probably Haven't Seen Before
Dinosaurs transported on the Hudson River, on their way to the 1964 World’s Fair.
At one time, dinosaurs walked among the Hudson River. And that time was 1964, in order to celebrate the 1964 World's Fair - which took place at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens. Sure the enjoyment of dinosaurs seems fun, but this was part of a promotion for an oil company exhibit. The Sinclair Oil Corporation sponsored "Dinoland." The exhibit featured life-size replicas of nine dinosaurs. Sounds cute right? Well of the dinosaurs was a seventy foot long version of Sinclair Oil Corporation's signature Brontosaurus. Gotcha! The Sinclair Dinoland creatures took two years to create - and were manufactured at Jonas Studios in Hudson, New York.
