Beautiful and Colorful World's Columbian Fold-Out Calendar, Terrific Illustrations
We couldn't capture the entire fold-out calendar, but you can see about 3/4 of it. This giveaway shows the length to which concessions and exhibitors went at the Expo to produce such high-quality advertising. The volume of promotional and advertising handouts plus actual products given away was unprecedented in the short history of world's fairs at the time. But even most modern world's fairs couldn't rival the volume (andeven some of the high quality printing/design) produced in 1893. Considering the huge gap in print technology and quality between 1893 and 2020 it is even more impressive what Columbian Exp exhibitors came up with.
