Egyptian streets. It opened on May 10, and was generally a
much larger version of the 1893 Chicago World's Fair exhibit)
The attraction consisted of 26 Egyptian buildings of Arabic
architecture and 67 booths and stands.
You could see street musicians, singing gypsies, entertainers,
monkeys, snake charming, donkey & camel rides, trained goats, street performers and jugglers, and other exotic attractions.
The exhibit included the International Restaurant, which seated 2,000 and the Alexandria Café, decorated in Egyptian splendor. The servers were all Egyptian-born. There you could dine on native cuisine or smoke an authentic waterpipe.
