The Bronx Worlds Fair of 1918???

Recommended Posts

I remember reading about this a long time ago but your information is just wonderful.  Thank you for sharing all of this.  Whether or not this was any sort of success, it was a very strange year to even try for such an event.  In 1918, the world was embroiled in the fifth year of The First World War.  It was a terrible year.

Not to mention the Spanish flu pandemic.  I'd heard mention of plans for this exposition but never realized it was actually held.

Good point.  More died, worldwide, from influenza than were killed in The Great War.
