1. "Above diagram shows the new Chicago Motor coach rainy-day route at the 12th street entrance to the World's Fair. During the day the buses deposit passengers at a canopy that leads to the entrance, and after nine p.m. passengers may alight within the grounds between 12th and 14th streets. A system of canopies makes it possible for visitors to arrive at the gate, enter the grounds, and take a bus to any building without getting wet."

2. "When Ella Nora Newholm, a post office clerk, of 118 South 14th Ave., East Duluth, Minn., stepped into the turnstile at the 12th St. entrance to the World's Fair on Tuesday night, September 4th, she had no idea she was making history. As she dropped her ticket into the hands of the guide on the gate she became the 10,000,000th visitor to A Century of Progress Exposition. She was greeted by M.M. Tveter, comptroller of the Fair and presented with a veritable armload of gifts, among which were: a Hild floor polishing machine, a ham, a clock, and other fine presents."
