This home movie from 1969 captures the Man and His World exhibition along the St. Lawrence River in Montreal, Canada. Located on the site of the 1967 International and Universal Exposition, also known as Expo 67, the exhibition encompasses the remaining international pavilions from the World’s Fair, including a geodesic dome representing the United States, seen in this footage. The exhibition ran from 1967 to 1984, when most of the buildings—originally designed to only last for the duration of the fair—began to deteriorate. The dome of the USA pavilion remains, however, and now hosts the Biosphère Environment Museum.
