 A Young Visitor to
The 1904World's Fair

Anna Ollie Stuart, age six, of Sparks, Nevada dressed in her finery going to ride the Ferris wheel.  When I was little she always told us it was magical to see all the electric lights.  No place she lived at that time had electricity.  Sparks (Nevada) had gas-lamps, etc.,   so a little girl from Nevada must have been overwhelmed.  At ninety, she told me she still dreamed about looking out at night over all the lighted Palaces at the fair.

Submitted by her daughter, Faith Pyle
