|Contextual Notes||Homer Davenport was a syndicated cartoonist whose satirical drawings often lampooned politicians, including New York legislator Thomas Platt, who attempted to pass an anti-cartoon bill in response. Davenport's friendship with President Theodore Roosevelt, however, helped him secure a trip to Turkey to purchase Arabian horses. At the exposition, his exhibit featured four Arabian horses and a collection of birds. |
"The Trail" was an 800 foot-long street that featured amusements and carnival attractions.
The Lewis and Clark Exposition was hosted by the city of Portland from June 1 to October 15, 1905. Covering over 400 acres, the fair showcased exhibits from various nations and states, and it promoted the economic potential of the Pacific Northwest region.
