Hello World...1893 World's Fair Display of Specimen Jars and Show Jars


A while back I posted about a frog specimen in a Whittall-Tatum fruit jar. Well, I was flipping through a book I bought at the auction I went to yesterday, and I found these photos of displays at the 1893 World's Fair with shelf upon shelf of produce displayed in Whittal-Tatum jars of all sizes. You can also see some of those lovely SHOW GLOBES, the big candy jars that used to be displayed in drugstores.
