This was amazing for the time! That's actually an excerpt from the 1939 movie The Middleton Family at the New York World's Fair belonging to the Collection 1939-40 New York World's Fair. The Middletons are designed to represent the middle class response to the Fair's imagined future of consumables and social improvement. The film is classic corporate spin. The Middletons visit the Fair, but they only tour the Westinghouse Building. They explore a Time Capsule, a television display, the Playground of Science, the Junior Science Hall, the Hall of Power, the Hall of Electrical Living, and the Battle of the Centuries.
