Rare Meal ticket for Tour to the World's Columbian Expo, Lot #111
This is a rare and relatively unknown ticket. Only one ticket book has ever been seen and The History Bank sold it off in individual tickets in 2008 when the Bolotin ticket collection was sold. I believe John Kennel purchased this and one other from the ticket book I had. The Columbus Society was like so many at the time, successful and busy during the fair, and effectively out of business immediately after. The ticket book contained similar vouchers for transportation to and from the hotel from the railroad station, meals for each day of the trip and for an admission to the fair.
