"Just Like Home -- so these three Senoritas say as they inspect the Spanish Village at the World's Fair. The Village is an exact copy from the sketches and photos made in Spain early this year by D.H. Burnham, architect. Left to right the Senoritas are Yolanda Diaz, Maria Olverez, and Maria de la Vega."
"Life-like in form and action, and with a look of evil intent, these prehistoric animals aren't good for your eyesight unless you are in command of all your faculties! We should be glad we did not live during the age of these huge beasts…what a chance would mere man have…however, the Sinclair exhibit proved to be very clever."

"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."

"Something new in section appeal - in a Pullman car. Posed to show how much easier it is to 'get up and get down' in the ultra-modern berths shown this year for the first time anywhere in the new streamlined, 110-miles-an-hour, diesel-motored, all aluminum Union Pacific Pullman trains. They make their debut at the World's Fair of 1934 in Chicago."
"Students from Tilden High school awaiting the opening of the Microvivarium exhibit in the Hall of Science today. This exhibit has attracted throngs of school student tours at the World's Fair and is considered such a valuable aid to education that the Chicago Biological Round Table, composed of all biology teachers in the city, is seeking some proper means to make a permanent exhibit."
"The 'Ford World' in New World's Fair. This electrically driven globe will be one of the exhibits in the giant Ford Building in the Exposition which opens in Chicago May 26. The drawing is by Hugh Ferriss. In the exhibit building will be dramatized the complete story of the contributions of science, industry, and agriculture to the modern automobile."
"The Chysler [sic] exhibit is a beautiful sight at night and equally so in the day time. Pools of clear, blue water, fountains, a runway for testing cars, and here Barney Oldfield holds forth to give you a thrill with the racing cars."

"When Mrs. Louisa Schmidt, 72, visited the World's Fair today (Monday) she wanted to see the furniture exhibits in the General Exhibits building as they brought back memories of the days when she worked in a similar display at the Philadelphia Centennial in 1876. Mrs. Schmidt whose home is in Atlantic City brought her gate and employee pass of the 1876 Exposition with her."
