    World's Columbian Exposition: Tickets and Passes to Attractions and Performances, including: a Concession 59 ticket for the International Dress and Costume Company, 25 cents, a bright teal blue ticket. This was essentially a fashion and beauty show advertising 60 beautiful women from 60 countries around the world. This is a very rare ticket. It is near mint but has a reinforcing bit of museum tape at the back where there must have been a light crease. Doolin 63; an equally rare pass for the International Dress Costume Co, the only one we've seen but likely two or three must be extant. This pass, number 943, is blank and was never used. Measures 2.75" x 4.75"; also, a piece promoting the English Military Tournament for 50 cents, a daily show in the Stock Pavilion that seated 12,000!; finally, a card regarding the Cliff Dwellers, an interesting exhibit of "the earliest civilization in North America," a card about the exhibit and a map showing its location at the extreme southeast corner of the grounds. It was the one attraction that seemed completely misplaced in the Midway. From the collection of Norm Bolotin.
