Expedition to the Exposition - 1915
by Cynthia Canfield Barnes
In 1915 Cynthia Canfield Barnes grandparents took their six sons by train from Oklahoma to the San Francisco Exposition celebrating the opening of the Panama Canal. These brothers stories were always a source of discussion, as each differently experienced any given event. Using her grandmothers postcards collected on this trip and the stories her sons told, Cynthia created this book of fiction based on fact. The events happened, but not in the same way for each one.
