Chestnut Street In 1020
"I tot off at the Pennsylvania Rail
read station and found my way te
Chestnut street," he said in describing
bis vision, "i expected te find it a
airrew oust street, like tne ones in
ether cities, but instead I found a court
f honor. There were net trolley cars

townspeople told me that the traffic

"Then I went west again en Chest,

was a street of nations, subdiv ided into
lectiens decorated with the flag of the
wleus nations represented nt the ex
position. There were sidewalk cafes
en the principal corners where thou
sands of persc.ns could step and talk.
The scene resembled one I might find 111
Londen or Paris.
"Barriers had been erected In tbe
ft for the passuge of automobiles
and between the barriers and the side
walks the space was reserved for
camels, elephants, horses and donkeys.
Racing en Bread Street
"Up en North Bread street, known
as automobile row, the automobile men,
at their own expense, had erected a
huge speedway where the world's lead
ing races did things that would raise
the hair of even the most blase.
Down at the southern end of Bread
street a huge athletic park had been
reeled. On the river the world's best
oarsmen were rowing. Baseball World
