Sights & Sounds of the Pan American Exposition$9.95
This illustrated, informative booklet offers a bird’s-eye view of the Pan-American Exposition. Review the grounds which were located between what today are Elmwood and Delaware avenues. See the sights that were seen then, when electricity was a novelty. And hear the sounds of the Pan-Am. A delightful CD of the music of the Pan-American Exposition as it was played by John Philip Sousa in 1901 – on player piano rolls – is tucked inside a colorful back pocket. A great way to experience a momentous event, when Buffalo came to be known as the City of Light.

I saw this book at 716mas at City of Light’s booth. It was marketed as a children’s book but as an adult, I loved it. It highlights all of the popular sights in Buffalo but accompanying the photographs and descriptions are the cute antics of a cartoon bison character named Bob Uffalo. It’s adorable, fun, interesting, attention holding, and well-laid out.
I appreciated Hannah’s extra attention in showing me the book and allowing me to also monopolize it for a bit to show it to my challenged aunt who was also excited and thrilled with the Canalside pictures especially (her favorite Buffalo spot).
Love this Buffalo-centric children’s book!
