Doug Schneider will talk about how our World’s Fair was full of innovations and inventions. Making their debut at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis were: the detachable electric plug, the world’s largest musical instrument, engineering standards, cotton candy, the private electric chair, the pyrheliophor, and many others. The World’s Fair exposed people to things that they had never seen before, including the vertical ice cream cone…and brought St. Louis clear drinking water for the first time.

This talk is part of the monthly World’s Fair Society meeting, which is open to the public. No need to RSVP. Just show up at Aberdeen Heights, and ask them to direct you to the 1904 World’s Fair Society meeting. Questions: contact Doug at
