World’s Fair Wednesday – 1939 Wonder Bakery

So, Wonder Bread had a presence at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York.  Kind of strange, but not super-strange; Wonder Bread was the wave of the (supposedly) healthy future! What stands out most about their presence is, clearly, their building.

The font, dots, and white-on-teal all scream “FOOD OF TOMORROW”.  Here’s a postcard of the same structure:

There was also a cartoon made called “Wonder Bakers at the World’s Fair”, but I can’t find the video of it! Here is a still:
