From the 1935 California Pacific Exposition, 80 years old this year. Two coupons to be used at the Stamp Mill in the Gold Gulch section of the Fair, right next to the infamous Zoro Gardens. The following is taken from the Chicago Tribune dated May 31 1935.
Crowds paid "two bits" a head today to enter Zoro Gardens where nudists abound at the California Pacific International Exposition. But the spectators found the forces of the law had tamed some of the roar out of "Gold Gulch" where police said there had been gambling going on .Gone was the faro bank from the Stamp Mill, so was the roulette wheel. While the Chinese Laundry, in which a lottery had been started only yesterday has been boarded up. It is estimated that at least half of the 60,000 Exposition visitors on opening day had visited the nudists. While the gambling devices of the Gulch were gathering dust a beaten path marked by a thousand feet grew dusty along the fence line of the two attractions. ( Evidently a prime viewing spot to look through the knot holes for those not wanting to part with 25 cents.
These two "bills" are in crisp condition. 2 5/8" x 6 3/4"
