1926 SESQUICENTENNIAL INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION
COMPLIMENTARY TICKET No E00001


Never saw this one before, let alone being No 1. If they weren't all numbered E00001 and I have a low number, that will be pretty amazing.
Measures 3 1/4"X 2"
Of course, I have a couple medals to go with it. I did not have a ticket for the 1926 Exposition yet.
Very happy that this is the one that will fill that hole.

Here's are links to some story on this International Exposition I posted when I acquired the medals. http://goccf.com/t/301479&whichpage=64#2786131

I know this thread started out with the title Happy Columbus Day For Me! 1893 Columbian Exposition Tickets
but

I began posting tickets printed by Bank Note companies and it has drifted to all sorts of World's Fair & Exposition tickets. I do appreciate the latitude to post related items here. They are a medium of exchange of sorts.

I appreciate others contributions and comments here, just because I started it doesn't mean it is my thread. Thanks all!

1936 Great Lakes Exposition Ticket


This ticket was for admission to The "Streets of the World" which was an exhibit created to expose visitors to other countries' cultures and featured cafes and bazaars inspired by the countries they represented.
Food samples, entertainment, and goods from 40+ different countries were all provided on the "Streets of the World".

The Great Lakes Exposition (also known as the World Fair of 1936) was held in Cleveland, Ohio, in the summers of 1936 and 1937, along the Lake Erie shore north of downtown.
The fair commemorated the centennial of Cleveland's incorporation as a city.
Conceived as a way to energize a city hit hard by the Great Depression, it highlighted the progress that had been achieved in the Great Lakes region in the last 100 years and indicated the path for future progress.
Covering over 135 acres of Cleveland's lakefront, it featured numerous attractions: rides, sideshows, botanical gardens, cafes, art galleries, and much more. Similar to the Chicago World Fair, the exposition also wanted to expose visitors to other countries' cultures, celebrate American industry, and promote local businesses.
Although the Great Lakes Exposition was not as much of a world fair as the Chicago World Fair was, the exposition drew 4 million visitors in its first season, and 7 million by the end of its second and final season in September 1937.

The exposition also feature some exhibits that would be considered today as politically incorrect including 260 pound ballerinas, a midget circus, a recreation of old Southern plantation life, and nude cancan dancers, who were eventually banned.

There was also an exhibit with a death mask of John Doe II the "tattooed man".
A victim of The Cleveland Torso Murderer, found at Morgan Run, near E 55th Street, Cleveland, was estimated to be 20-23 years old, light complexion, reddish brown hair, chestnut colored eyes, stood 5 foot 10" or 11" tall, slender build, weighed 165 lb. He had six unusual tattoos on his body:
One included a bird and band and the names "Helen and Paul" were on the inner side of his left forearm, another tattoo on the outer side of his right forearm was a heart and anchor in red and blue, on the inner side was a flag and the initials "W.C.G."
A butterfly was tattooed on his left shoulder, a head of comic character "Jiggs" was tattooed on his left leg at the ankle, and "Cupid" was tattooed on his right leg at the ankle.
Despite morgue and death mask inspections by thousands of Cleveland citizens in the summer of 1936 at the Great Lakes Exposition, the victim known as the "tattooed man" was never identified.
The Cleveland Torso Murderer (also known as the Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run) was an unidentified serial killer who was active in Cleveland, Ohio, United States in the 1930s. The killings were defined by the dismemberment of twelve known victims and the disposal of their remains in the impoverished neighborhood of Kingsbury Run.
Despite an investigation of the murders, which at one time was led by famed lawman and Cleveland's then-Public Safety Director Eliot Ness, the murderer was never apprehended.

April 1 1939 New York World's Fair Cover
UPDATE:

http://goccf.com/t/330506&whichpage=5#2936962

After this arrived, there is not a ticket inside.
I did the old "hold up to a candle" trick and could read a lined piece of paper folded that has the name Francis MacBride and that's all I see on it. Wonder if it is an autograph or some Hobby shop contest entry or just a cover sent to the hobby shop from a Francis MacBride?

I did find a James Francis Macbride that was an American botanist who devoted most of his professional life to the study of the flora of Peru. Born on 19 May 1892 in Rock Valley, Iowa. Macbride graduated from the University of Wyoming in 1914 and worked briefly at the Gray Herbarium, Harvard University.

Even if this were that person, it's not like I have an Einstien autograph here.
It will remain sealed.

Another update for the ticket shown at the top of this page 6.

1926 SESQUICENTENNIAL INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION
COMPLIMENTARY TICKET No E00001

http://goccf.com/t/330506&whichpage=6#2937146

There has to be a connection here

A photo shows Prince Bertil of Sweden stepping out of the "John Morton Memorial Building" where the American Swedish Historical Museum is in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The museum was founded and its construction was guided by Dr. Amandus Johnson beginning in 1926. The building is so named because John Morton was a descendant of the original Swedish settlers who signed the Declaration of Independence.

On June 2, 1926, same date this ticket was stamped, then Crown Prince Gustav Adolf (later King Gustav Adolf VI) placed the Museum's corner stone. Could this possibly be a complimentary ticket given to the person who attended and signed it on the Liberty Bell side of this ticket at the cornerstone laying ceremony?
I cannot read the signature.

1939 Golden Gate International Exposition Ticket



The Golden Gate International Exposition, held at San Francisco's Treasure Island, was a World's Fair celebrating, among other things, the city's two newly built bridges.
The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge opened in 1936 and the Golden Gate Bridge in 1937. The exposition opened from February 18, 1939, through October 29, 1939, and from May 25, 1940, through September 29, 1940.

This is a "Junior" admission ticket. Stub still attached. I would imagine this is for a child.


With March Madness upon us, I find this interesting information.
This ticket wouldn't get you into basketball games. But . . .

The 1939 NCAA Basketball Tournament
As part of the exposition, the California Coliseum, located near the grounds' northeast corner, hosted the Western Regional Semifinal and Final rounds of the first-ever NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament.

The Coliseum, listed in NCAA guidebooks as having a capacity of 9,476, hosted two Elite Eight games and a Final Four game.

The Western regional included the Oklahoma Sooners, Oregon Ducks, Texas Longhorns and the Utah State Aggies.

In the Regional Semifinal round (now referred to as the Elite Eight), the Ducks beat the Longhorns 56-41 and the Sooners beat the Aggies 50-39.

In the Regional Final round, (first Final Four game), the Ducks beat the Sooners 55-37, advancing to the National Championship game in Evanston, Illinois, where they would win the first ever national championship 46-30 against the Ohio State Buckeyes.

There was also a regional third place game played in the Coliseum, which was won by the Aggies, 51-49.

80 Years Ago!

I think I'm seeing inverted E00002 on the back, which would presumably be bleed-through from the next ticket in the original stack.

If this is correct, it means that they weren't all number 1, and you probably have a low number (though admittedly so far there's no proof that the numbers went any further than 2).

That is super observant of you january1may! I see it too now.
Kind of exciting to think it might be the low number E00001.

I am impressed with your excellent detective work and appreciate your interest in that ticket and for taking the time to post.

1936 Texas Centennial Exposition Tickets Booklet


Stubs remain in souvenir booklet numbered 78481 lettered A through E.

The admission tickets themselves have been detached. Booklets with all 5 stubs are quite a bit more scarce than individual stubs. Complete tickets with stubs are very hard to find and I have not seen a complete unused booklet yet.

On the front of each stub there are 6 figures carrying the banners that represent the six different nations that have governed Texas. They are Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the United States of America, and the Confederate States of America.

The 1937 Greater Texas And Pan American Exposition was a completely different event that was held in Dallas Texas the following year.

Although not directly connected to the exposition, there is an amusement park located in Arlington, Texas, east of Fort Worth and about 15 miles west of Dallas. The original park opened in 1961 and was divided into six separate themed areas for each of the six governing entities that have ruled over Texas.

Today the Confederate flag no longer flies over the theme park.
For a time it was replaced with another having 7 stars and three bars but I think that 6 American flags now fly over the theme park entrances at the various locations where 6 Flags parks now are located.


Please don't comment about the flags here or other political issues. I am simply posting some historical points.
