They are inspecting a mummy which is believed to date from the 7th century B.C.

The specimen is loaned by the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago."
"Humans may like pie eating contests but monkeys prefer bananas in the raw if you don't mind, as you may readily see by this picture, which was snapped yesterday during the height of the World's Fair Monkey Banana Pie Eating Contest staged at the Frank Buck show on Northerly Island. A real monkey riot was precipitated shortly after this picture was taken by a gentleman who came to the show with a dozen real bananas."
"Patricia Marquam, Fair beauty queen, and Phil Baker, Armour's star jester on the radio, see and hear each other over the very latest in two-way telephone-television at the Television theater in the Electrical building at the new World's Fair in Chicago. This picture shows the manner in which the phone booths are equipped and the image each saw. Patricia has just interrupted one of Phil's jokes with a merry quip of her own which, as can be seen, beings a broad grin to Phil's face."
