An exposition highlights the best an area has to offer in the areas of farming and manufacturing. The Eastern States Exposition opened in 1916 and was an immediate and ongoing success. It opened at a time when the public worried that farming was beginning to die out. A trip to the "Big E" has become for millions of New Englanders a regular fall event. A photographer for the Springfield News captured this image of the model of the Old Boston Statehouse and Midway at the Eastern States in 1923.
