Through the Eyes of a Fairgoer: The 1904 World's Fair Memoir of Edward V. P. Schneiderhahn
Not available online
TitleThrough the Eyes of a Fairgoer: The 1904 World's Fair Memoir of Edward V. P. Schneiderhahn
AbstractArticle reprinting and commenting on the thorough memoir of a German tourist of the 1904 World's Fair, with critiques of each palace of displays and comparisons to previous World's Fairs, also with photos and map.
NotesThe 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis [also called the 1904 World's Fair], commemorating the Louisiana Purchase and American westward expansion, was particularly explicit and even shameless in its promotion of American values and Yankee ingenuity. That it followed on the heels of the Spanish-American War and America's acquisition of its first colonies only reinforced this self-promotion.
