Chicago Historical Society

World's Fair Broadside

Consider These Questions

1. How does this broadside attempt to interest people in attending the Chicago World's Fair? What messages does it convey about the life and times of America in 1893?

2. Who do you think was the target audience for this advertisement? Do you think it would have been effective?

3. How is this advertisement similar to one you might expect for a modern-day world's fair? How is it different?
