Representations of the ancient past and the distant future are juxtaposed in a really weird, surreal way in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

I love seeing the Jetson-style towers of the New York Pavillion behind this Corythosaurus. The dinosaurs aren’t there anymore. The towers are still standing, but in ruin.

More vintage photos from Sinclair Oil’s “Dinoland” can be found at Gorillas Don’t Blog.
