This is one of many fine World's Fair antiquities that I will be listing over the coming months. I have recently been tasked to liquidate an entire estate of a gentleman's lifetime of collecting world's fair memorabilia. Please check back often for more items, some are one-of-a-kind finds!This is a Chicago World's Fair "Century of Progress" 1933 -34 used postcard of the Mayan TempleSome facts about the fair (from Wikipedia) are:One of the highlights of the 1933 World's Fair was the arrival of the German airship Graf Zeppelin on October 26, 1933. After circling Lake Michigan near the exposition for two hours, Commander Hugo Eckener landed the 776-foot airship at the nearby Curtiss-Wright Airport in Glenview. It remained on the ground for twenty-five minutes (from 1 to 1:25pm)[5] then took off ahead of an approaching weather front bound for Akron, Ohio. For some Chicagoans, however, the appearance of the Graf Zeppelin over their fair city was not a welcome sight, as the airship had become a prominent reminder of the ascendancy of Adolf Hitler to power earlier that same year. This triggered dissension in the days following its visit, particularly within the city's large German-American population.[citation needed]The "dream cars" which American automobile manufacturers exhibited at the fair included Cadillac's introduction of its V-16 limousine; Nash's exhibit had a variation on the vertical (i.e., paternoster) parking garage—all the cars were new Nashes; Lincoln presented its rear-engined "concept car" precursor to the Lincoln-Zephyr, which went on the market in 1936 with a front engine; Pierce-Arrow presented its modernistic Pierce Silver Arrow for which it used the byline "Suddenly it's 1940!" But it was Packard which won the best of show.PAYMENT IS EXPECTED IMMEDIATELY Most items that I sell are vintage and will show use that reflects this. Please ask questions. I do my best to describe items as accurately as possible. I try to inspect pieces thoroughly. I purchase from products so I cannot guarantee your item has not been in a basement, attic, near smoke or pets, etc. Thank you for shopping with me!!
