It Happened at The World's Fair: Part 1
Last week we touched briefly on the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. And that got some people asking if there had ever been a World’s Fair in Philadelphia. The answer is yes; actually there were two international exhibitions hosted in Philadelphia; the Centennial in 1876 and the Sesqui-Centennial in 1926. They were celebrated in Fairmount and South Philly respectively. World leaders, inventors, celebrities, and the common folk mingled there to take a glimpse at the future. And today we’re going to take a look back at them.
(This episode went long so we broke it into two.)
