Poster for the Great Lakes Exposition.

This reference library update is a PDF of a souvenir picture book of this mid-1930’s world’s fair in Cleveland, Ohio in 1936 & 1937. Often overshadowed by the fairs of Chicago (1933-1934) and New York and San Francisco (1939-1940), is The Great Lakes Exposition. Cleveland was not the only city to host a world’s fair in 1936, there were also fairs in Dallas, Texas and San Diego, California.


I’m always seeking out world’s fair collectibles, especially the lesser well-known ones. So when I saw this souvenir book in Antiques Center at the People’s Store in Lambertville, NJ, I grabbed it. It is the only item that I have from The Great Lakes Exposition.

So travel to Cleveland and the fair by clicking on the cover of the book below and enjoy.
