The Czech series #2 - The Expo 58

Expo 58, also known as the Brussels World’s FairBrusselse Wereldtentoonstelling or Exposition Universelle et Internationale de Bruxelles, was held from 17 April to 19 October 1958. It was the first major World's Fair after World War II.

Czechoslovakia was very well presented at the fair with their beautiful Tatra limousines and, of course, the then famous Fezco / TONAK berets. 
The Czechoslovak pavilion was visited by 6 million people and was officially awarded the best pavilion of the Expo 58.
