A dear friend  I met through this blog, known to bloggers as “Mrs. P.”, found a fantastic clip of The Chicago World’s Fair.

This is the last bunch of a packet of 20 postcards Ced mailed to the family in a Souvenir booklet. The introduction states that it is the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair but the Fair actually ran for two years, 1933-34.

Tomorrow another post from Ced’s Coming of Age Adventure and the 1934 Chicago World’s Fair.

Tomorrow I’ll begin another week of Grandpa’s unique, personalized Christmas Cards. The first is from 1956 and celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Trumbull House.

  2. Judy, thanks for posting the You Tube link. It was also interesting to view a video by the Chicago Tribune, “1933 Chicago World’s Fair 80 years later.”
