This little packet of souvenir views of the 1933 Chicago Century of Progress contains 16 different images with descriptions on the reverse side. The packet was designed to be sent through the mail like a postcard folio, however these views are not folded into a perforated foldout, but rather packed as 16 different pictures in a packet. These miniature views are often a neglected ephemera category but they are interesting and varied in their subject matter. This packet is Series 2 and was copyrighted by Curt Teich & Co, Chicago, ILL. This packet has not been mailed and is in very good condition. The miniature view packet measures 2 1/2 x 3 inches as do the small card views inside.

Aeroplane view of Fair Grounds
Panoramic View of the Century of Progress, World’s Fair 1933
