Artifact of the Day - World's Fair Rug

I think the idea of the World's Fair is a cool idea.  I wish I had been around for the early ones.  They look so fun!  I am obsessed with the 1933 and 1939 World's Fairs.

This rug commemorated the 1933-1934 World's Fair in Chicago.  Entitled "A Century of Progress", it focused on science.

I used to own this cool rug, but had to sell it a few years ago.  Gotta eat, you know.  It went for $50.  I found out recently that it was worth a few hundred dollars.  Total bummer!
