The World's Fair of 1910 Will Look Small to the Crowds I'll Draw -- July 17, 2013

After he left Mack Sennett, Harry Langdon's first feature on a lucrative First National contract was Tramp Tramp Tramp, the story of cross-country walking race.

This ad is from the 08-March-1926 Film Daily. It is one of a series of cross-country ads to parallel the race. I couldn't find one or two editions, so we have missed Indianapolis.  I'm a little confused because the 1910 World's Fair was in Brussels.  The 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition, a world's fair, was in Saint Louis. Kansas City, here we come.
