Universal Exposition - Louisiana Purchase CertificateInv# WF1022
St. Louis, Missouri, 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exhibition Certificate of Attendance. The exhibition celebrated the centennial of the Louisiana Purchase (delayed one year). The Fair inspired the song "Meet Me in St. Louis, Louis," which was recorded by many artists including Billy Murray. Both the Fair and the song are focal points of the 1944 Judy Garland movie "Meet Me in St. Louis". A very attractive certificate that has become quite scarce.
