DescriptionIn late May, 1910, Edward Gardner Lewis opened the campus of the Lewis Publishing Company and the People's University for the Old Country Fair, a benefit for the Mothers and Babies Home of St. Louis. This photograph shows the tents set up on the lawn in front of the Art Academy Building and fair visitors strolling among the concessions. The Woman's National Daily Building is on the left. The building that appears to be at the far end of the main Fair walkway is actually on the south side of Delmar Boulevard, and is a restaurant and grocery store. This photograph appeared in "The Woman's National Daily" on June 1, 1910.
