    World's Columbian Exposition: Lot of Thirteen Railroad and Fair-Related Items. C.E. Dearborn, a railroad engineer, worked on trains in Chicago during the fair, as well as for a decade before and two decades after. This is a conglomeration of some of his passes and related items stretching back to 1884. An interesting group, including: an 1890 Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe ticket to Chicago from Wentworth; a Baltimore and Ohio RR 1892 pass to Chicago; a Chicago Rock Island & Pacific RR suburban roundtrip Chicago and Englewood pass; a Baltimore & Ohio Chicago June 27, 1893 pass; nine more Chicago passes from 1884 to 1913 and a Columbian Intramural route map and a discount coupon from shopping at the French Bakery. The lot consists of thirteen total pieces. Terrific for the Columbian, railroad and general history buff! From the collection of Norm Bolotin.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
