2. "The bespectacled youth on the right is Dennis O' Shea, pie-eating champion of the 1934 World's Fair. Dennis inhaled a six-inch blueberry pie in one minute and thirteen seconds to win a contest staged at the Armour Building on Children's Day. At the left is Edward Jackson, who took third place in the contest, and Bob Callow, winner of the second prize, is in the middle. Callow might have won but he overlooked a bit of the filling which dropped off onto his plate and a vigilant judge made him clean it up."
