Official Views of the
  Louisiana Purchase Exposition

The World's Fair of 1904 celebrates the Centennial of the Louisiana Purchase, an event in American history having an importance secondary only to the Declaration of Independence.  The territory acquired from France by this purchase embraced all the land lying between the Mississippi river and the crest of the Rocky Mountains, and its ownership by the United States made possible the extension of the nation's boundaries to the Pacific Ocean.  No centennial was ever so grandly celebrated, for this Exposition is without a peer in history, and a visit within its gates is an event to be always remembered with pleasure and satisfaction by young and old alike.
