Jamestown Ter-Centennial Exposition

This 1907 lithograph advertises the Jamestown Ter-Centennial Exposition in Norfolk, an event marking the three hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Jamestown colony by settlers from England. The exposition, which ran from April 26 to November 30, 1907, was one in a series of large fairs and expositions held across the United States, beginning with the 1893 World's Columbian Exhibition in Chicago, which commemorated the four hundredth anniversary of Christopher Columbus's landing in America.
