Expo? Sure!

Daily prompt: exposure

Had I been alive, I would have attended the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. There, I would have seen the first of these edibles:

  • Cream of Wheat
  • Juicy Fruit Gum (don’t swallow)
  • Quaker Oats
  • Shredded Wheat
  • Aunt Jemima pancake mix

I’m not a beer drinker so I would have passed on the Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.

I would have seen for the first time:

  • the device making the plates for printing books in Braille
  • the first model of the zipper (the clasp locker)
  • an automatic dishwasher
  • and, THE FERRIS WHEEL!!
