Summary:
An artificial collection of ephemera from World's Fairs, intended as a growing repository for such miscellany from multiple sources. The initial donation consists of a season ticket, a booklet of souvenir tickets, and one menu from the 1939 New York World's Fair. The 2010 addendum contains eleven graphic works relating to World's Fairs. Eight of the items relate to the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia in 1876, including a poster, a map, a souvenir booklet, and several views of the Fair printed in Harper's Weekly; in addition to a cartoon depicting the Crystal Palace in New York in 1883, and two ads for the Canadian Pacific Railroad. Also in the collection are souvenir books and pamphlets from the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. The 2011 addendum contains four items relating to the Expo 2010, Shanghai, China. It includes an admission ticket, a Shanghai tourist map, and two copies of a map of the city of Shanghai. The 2013 addendum includes maps and guidebooks to the 1939 World's Fair. A second 2103 addendum is one pamphlet from the 1876 Centennial Exposition.
