One century after the fair itself, Meet Me in St. Louis: A Trip to the 1904 World's Fair by Robert Jackson offers a close look at all aspects of this historic event. Interspersed with often wittily captioned b&w photographs, the book examines the preparations, buildings and exhibitions from around the world. From the fantastic (""an amazing series of refrigerated butter scenes"") to the tragic aspects of the fair (widespread racism), Jackson provides a thorough account of the exhibition.
