    World's Columbian Exposition: Three Excursion Tickets. These excursion tickets to the Chicago World's Fair consist of the stubs that were taken by the conductor and are labeled as such. How they survived in private hands is anyone's guess. One is yellow, one is orange, one reads "Chicago and Return via C&A" (ticket number 99) and the other is St. Louis and return and number 97. These measure 1.75" x 2.5" and 2" x 2.5" each. Also included is a World's Fair Excursion Ticket from Brodhead Wisconsin on yellow stock, measuring 2.5" square. It was once folded but has a mint appearance. Possibly unique, as we have never seen another World's Fair Excursion ticket on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway, and certain not one from Brodhead to Chicago! From the collection of Norm Bolotin.
