    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.
