1. [Interior view of the Italian Pavilion at the Century of Progress International Exposition. The Pavilion's giant airplane design celebrated Italo Balbo's transatlantic flight to the Century of Progress in 1933. Balbo was an Italian fascist, a leader of the Blackshirts, and a minister in Benito Mussolini's government. The front of the building also resembled the bundled fasces, an ancient symbol of the Roman Republic that was adopted by Italian and German fascists in the 20th century. Seen here is the Italian State Tourist Information Office located in the Pavilion's auditorium room.]

2. [Owney the Postal Dog began his mail delivery career when he strayed into the Albany post office in 1888. The mail clerks considered Owney to be a good luck charm and adopted him.

6. "Sarita Valiente, 10 year old visitor from Havana, Cuba, with both hands clutching nickels, is well prepared for her Children's Day visit to the Chicago World's Fair. A nickel is all it takes for anyone under 12 to pass practically any ticket office on the grounds that day. She is shown here in front of the Puerto Rican exhibit in the Court of States to which she paid a neighborly visit. Little Sarita is a niece of Guillermo Valiente, recently appointed Cuban vice-consul to Chicago."

"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."
