Notes

Colour illustration. "The United States Steel Building, New York World's Fair A striking architectural feature of this 66-foot high stainless steel building is the use of the structural steel members on the exterior as a basic element of design. These members, weighing 350 tons and measuring 72 feet above the ground, painted blue, conceal lights which are directed against the polished dome at night. Visitors will see a dramatic presentation of the world of tomorrow which steel helped to build. Design was by Walter Dorwin Teague. Architects York & Sawyer."
