Another book to read, A Week at the Fair

s-l1600

It is about the 1893 World’s Fair, called the Columbian Exposition, in Chicago. It was a celebration of Christopher Columbus and his discovery of the New World. The fair showcased many inventions and creations. It was a remarkable event.

My great-great-grandfather lived there at the time. My great-grandmother was a baby and became a toddler while living in Little Italy.

Often I first search Google Books and then, if unsuccessful, I use the HathiTrust.
