There will be a special display of 1933 World's Fair memorabilia.  Collectors and dealers will meet to buy, sell and trade items related to World's Fairs from 1876 to the present.  The main focus will be on the 1933 & 1934 Chicago World's Fair.  There will also be items from the 1893 Chicago Columbian Exposition and other Chicago related ephemera.  There will be some items from other World's Fairs including:  1904 St. Louis, 1939-40 New York, 1962 Seattle, 1964-65 New York, Expo '67, etc.  There will be over 20 tables of World's Fair items for sale!
