484. New York World's Fair-Ireland (Eire)


Dear Dennis Michael,

The Irish Pavilion for the 1938-9 New York World's Fair
was the first appearance of Ireland as an independent
country at an international trade fair. The Irish Government
wanted the building to have a modern and high quality yet
recognizably Irish character. Architect Michael Scott
produced a shamrock shaped building, built in steel,
concrete and glass.

Best.
