Ced’s Amazing Adventure (11) – What I Saw at the Chicago World’s Fair (4) – July, 1934

While Ced was traveling to North Dakota and Wisconsin to find his late Mother’s family, he stopped at the 1934 Chicago World’s Fair. He kept documents, letters and memorabilia from the Fair. This post is taken from the  booklet, “What I saw at the Chicago World’s Fair – 1934” and it includes comments written by Ced on every page.

FIREWORKS

I sat and watched these fireworks one night and believe me words can’t describe their beauty. They were sent off from the sky-ride tower on the island and from barges on the lagoon, lights from the northern end of the lagoon put on the smoke from the fire works and different colors blended and made some of the most lovely shifting shades of beautiful colors which I have ever seen.

BUCKINGHAM FOUNTAIN

This fountain is also at the northern end of the lagoon in the spring goes quite high into the air and when the colored lights aren’t on fireworks and smoke they are on the spray which is also very beautiful but it can’t rival the smoke and beauty.

BELGIAN VILLAGE

Did not go in here, but had time and money permitted, this is one of the very few things which I missed but should have liked to have seen.

Tomorrow, more highlights of the 1934 Chicago World’s Fair as seen through the eyes of 17 year old Ced. Judy Guion
