1972 WORLD TRADE CENTER IN CONSTRUCTION - ALCOA ALUMINUM PROMOTIONAL BOOKLET
An ALCOA ALUMINUM Promotional Booklet showing the Original New York City WORLD TRADE CENTER / TWIN TOWERS in construction.
One of the features of the Twin Towers was the Aluminum Facade that used a special aluminum alloy produced by Alcoa. From Wikipedia: "Yamasaki's (Yamasaki was the lead architect) design included building facades sheathed in aluminum alloy."
Booklet, side stapled, 9x12 inches, 18 pages including covers. The centerfold unfolds to 4 panels.
The brochure details and illustrates the benefits of utilizing an aluminum alloy produced by Alcoa Aluminum in the construction of the World Trade Center.
GOOD condition, some stiffness / light waviness and wear from handling, light shorelining to the front margin of the front cover, some soiling to the rear cover, the rear cover has an ink stamp that reads "Received / Mar 13 1972 / De Mars & Wells" (De Mars & Wells, aka DeMars and Wells, was a California architecture firm); otherwise bright, clean, clear and unmarked.
The New York City World Trade Center opened in 1973. At the time, the Twin Towers were the tallest buildings in the world.
An interesting and rare historic document.
