We have what we think is a flag from the 1893 World's Fair. It shows
Christopher Columbus and the dates 1492–1892. It was purchased by my friend's
father in 1906 or 1907, in New York, for $1.50. They had a few more things that
they said were from the Columbian Exposition but most of those have been sold.
We assum this was also from the Columbian Expo in Chicago.
