Official Guide; Book of the Fair. A Century of Progress.

Cover has some wear, soiling, tears and chips. Corners of some pages creased. A Century of Progress International Exposition was a World's Fair registered under the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), which was held in Chicago, as The Chicago World's Fair, from 1933 to 1934 to celebrate the city's centennial. The theme of the fair was technological innovation. The fair's motto was "Science Finds, Industry Applies, Man Adapts". Its architectural symbol was the Sky Ride, a transporter bridge perpendicular to the shore on which one could ride from one side of the fair to the other. One description of the fair noted that the world, "then still mired in the malaise of the Great Depression, could glimpse a happier not-too-distant future, all driven by innovation in science and technology." Visitors saw the latest wonders in rail travel, automobiles, architecture and robots.

From Abbeville to Zebulon; Early Post Card Views of Georgia. Gary L. Doster.
Athens, GA: The University of Georgia Press, 1991. First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xviii, 222 pages. Illustrations. Index to Counties. Index to Towns. Name of previous owner on fep. The post cards are reproduced at 86% to 96% of original size. The post card was, or could be, an inexpensive means of advertising. Cards postmarked in the city that was the subject of the view were particularly sought after. In 1909 one national post card collector's club based in Philadelphia claimed to have ten thousand members. After the Columbian Exposition, several companies began to issue limited edition series of postcards. In the early 1900's Eastman Kodak developed a postcard size paper which photographs could be printed on. The first picture post cards from Georgia were a set of twelve views commemorating the Cotton States Exposition held in Atlanta in 1895 and sold from vending machines. The rest is history and is documents in this monumental and intriguing work.
