Kansas City Mo.
July 6, 1926
Dear Folks:
Well just about
the same heat is just
about to get to me. The nurse said
this morning I might get
away the last of this week
but I am not counting on
getting away that soon. Dr.
Maris left yesterday.

With love Lula

Dr. A. J. Maris sent the family a postcard from the Chicago World’s Fair.
Someone in Lula’s household received a birthday card from the clinic.

Birthday Card – From Thornton & Minor Clinic, Kansas City MO

I don’t know who the card was sent to, but it was likely either Alexander Gray (1856-1940) or his daughter Lula Gray (1881-1973) because I believe they were both patients there.

Dr. A. J. Maris sent the family a postcard from the Chicago World’s Fair. Lula Gray sent her sister a postcard in 1926 while a patient.

Postcard – Sky Ride at Chicago’s World Fair 1933

Postmarked: 18 August 1933, Chicago IL
To: Mr. Alex Gray, Craig, MO

The thrill of this
“Sky Ride” trip above
the greatest fair the
world has ever known
reminds me of the
joy experienced in
hearing from my grateful
Thornton and Minor
Clinic friends.

Dr. A. J. Maris

The Thornton and Minor Clinic was in Kansas City, Missouri.

The postcard is printed with this description:
Sky Ride
One of the most interesting features of Chicago’s World’s Fair is the “Sky Ride.” The towers are 600 feet high and 1,850 feet apart. Double decked rocket cars will run suspended from 4 cabled tracks between and around the two towers. The estimated cost of construction of the “Sky Ride” is $1,000,000.00.
