"In keeping with the World's Fair theme of 'Building the World of Tomorrow,' the General Motors Exhibit presents a conception of future motor traffic regulations and super-highways, 'Highways and Horizons.' By means of a continuous escalator, visitors seated in comfortable moving chairs travel over the super-highways of tomorrow. The tour is climaxed by a full-size street intersection, showing the architecture, motor traffic and pedestrian facilities of the future. Norman Bel Geddes is the designer, and the architect is Albert Kahn, Inc."--verso.
