  • Rating: NR
The Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904, known as the St. Louis World's Fair, might have been called the 'greatest show on earth', an event unequalled in its time and influential enough to maintain a memorable part of our 20th century American history. The 1904 St. Louis World's Fair was twice the size of Chicago's 1893 world's fair and is described as the most successful world's fair ever.
