Fifteen-foot high frescoes
depicting the history of Switzerland bring alive the outer walls
of the pavilion. Craftsmanship, high style and beauty combine
to tempt the visitor who pushes through the swing doors into
the pavilion itself.
The pavilion is on the
Avenue of United Nations South, close to the center of the miniature
Flushing Meadow world.
The Swiss engineering industry
is also on show in New York. The Swiss Sky Ride, built by von Roll Ltd., actually
forms part of the Fair's installations. Its small brightly colored
comfortable cabins are in fact one of the main attractions of
the Fair and are extremely popular with visitors wishing to have
an overall bird's eye view of the central area.
