Since this  site opened up in March 16, 2008 with 145 pages of information,   I believe that I have updated this 1904 World's Fair site more than  any  WF site on the Internet  (of course I  may  be  wrong).  Since the list was getting  long, I added an  ARCHIVED UPDATES button above for the curious to check out how much I have  done prior to the below listing.   I will still upgrade and add information  to  this site as I  can.
