Thursday, May 25, 1933

It rained today. I waited until about four-thirty but it didn't stop raining so Dorothy Brashear and I walked home in the rain. I sure got wet.

1c yellow green Fort Dearborn  single, May 25, 1933
1-cent yellow-green Fort Dearborn stamp for the postcard rate
Issued for the 1933 Chicago World's Fair by the US Postal Department on May 25, 1933
This was one of three stamp designs for the 1933 fair, with a total of seven varieties.

In 1933 the city of Chicago staged its second world's fair,
A Century of Progress, to celebrate its centennial. In just one
hundred years the city had grown from a small community formed
around a trading post and a federal fort to the fourth largest city in the world.
