Overview

As Midnight struck on December 1, 1904, World's Fair President David R. Francis stood before a hushed crowd of 100,000 in Forest Park in St. Louis. He then threw a switch that extinguished forever the fair that had been a magical kingdom for several months.

And yet � from a department store in Philadelphia to a hilltop in Birmingham, from a front yard in Moberly, Missouri, to a museum in Alaska—and in dozens of other places—the World's Fair still lives on.

In Still Shining!, Diane Rademacher tracks down the present history and location of the 1904 World's Fair's most beloved buildings and structures. Rademacher's book contains original pictures of famous structures and how they look today.
