The St. Louis World's Fair was the perfect place for nations to showcase their development, their technology, and wares; not to mention working politics, business, trade, and financial support into the mix.
The `Place of Nations' was found between International Avenue, University Boulevard, and the mid-northwestern section of the fairgrounds.
The Nation buildings had more exhibits than the states' clubhouse setup, but these foreign structures housed rooms for kings, queens, and other monarchy as well as dignitaries and such.
Many of the buildings had souvenirs for sale and as well as eateries.
