Red carpet from Pope Paul VI’s visit to the United States on October 4th, 1965. This was the first visit to America by a pope.
This is a unique piece that looks like a fairly large book but when opened, it has an image of Pope Paul VI walking on a red carpet greeting people. When you flip it over it says:
On this piece of carpet, specially made by Gulistan Carpet, (Division of J. P. Stevens and Co) His Holiness entered the Vatican Pavilion of the New York World’s Fair on the occasion of his unprecedented visit. October 4th, 1965.
When the page is turned there is a piece of the red carpet.
