    World's Columbian Exposition: Special Excursion Ticket for the Governor of Maine. Also for the governor's party. This is a railroad ticket for one first-class passage to Chicago and return. Attached is one stub for passage from Portland to Woodfords, and below this stub is an uneven tear indicating there were multiple stubs attached. The main ticket is 3.25" x 2.5" and with the one stub remaining the overall size is 4.5" x 2.5". The ticket is on light blue paper stock with black ink on all except the number "11", apparently a seat number. Unique. From the collection of Norm Bolotin.
