RARE WORLD'S FAIR BOOKMARK, CIRCA 1933.

THE CENTURY OF PROGRESS WAS HELD TO COMMEMORATE THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE INCORPORATION OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO. THE THEME OF THE FAIR WAS TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION. ITS MOTTO WAS " SCIENCE FINDS, INDUSTRY APPLIES, MAN CONFORMS." ITS ARCHITECTURAL SYMBOL WAS THE SKY RIDE, A TRANSPORTER BRIDGE PERPENDICULAR TO THE SHORE ON WHICH ONE COULD RIDE FROM ONE END OF THE FAIR TO THE OTHER.

IT IS EMBOSSED "1933 A CENTURY OF PROGRESS CARILLON TOWER CHICAGO". MADE OF COPPER AND BRASS AND MEASURES 4 1/2" INCHES LONG. A VERY SMALL BEND AT THE TOP AS IT SHOULD BE WITH USE AND IS IN GREAT CONDITION!
