My grandmother, Winifred (Long) Hale, was at the New York World's Fair
in 1939.  Her sisters, friends and her took part in some type of
recording device of the times.  I am not sure of the content of this
recording, but would love to see them or hear them all together.  They
called themselves the Tulip Speed Girls.  Can you please locate a copy
of this recording?

Hello chenggeler-ga,

Was this a voice recording or a television recording? TV was first
introduced at the World's Fair that year and therefore it could have
been a # of different types of recordings. Do you have any more
details for us here at Google Answers?

I believed that it was television at least that was how the story was
told, but I thought I would take a crack at any type of recording
device of this group.  Is it possible to find a list of events for the
fair that might list anyone that was doing recordings at that time? 
Hope this helps!!

Television was first introduced at the 1939 World's fair and I have
been able to find evidence some people were recorded and broadcast
live during the Fair. It however was not recorded.

Are you able to clarify any of the details with your Grandmother?

I can't find it and I looked and looked and it doesn't exist on the
internet. If you can't find it on the internet there is no way you can
find it anywhere else. good luck.

Amateur recording booths used to be common. For as little as 25 cents,
a phonograph recording could be made by anyone. If this was an amateur
recording, there would probably have been only one copy of it.
