For June 15, 2005:

The scene is set, you've traveled many miles, and now you're ready to enter the front gate of the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. The fair, also called the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, marked the 100th anniversary of that event in U.S. history. At this Web site <http://exhibits.slpl.lib.mo.us/lpe/index.asp>, which was developed by the St. Louis Public Library, grand examples of souvenirs, exhibits, costumes, and advertising are wonderfully arranged in a variety of categories such as Meals & Lodging; People, Dress, & Customs; and Innovations on Display. Primary sources and artifacts from the fair combined with snippets of information make this site appealing for all ages.
