It’s dinner time and the restaurant at Alt Nurnberg on the Midway has reservations for us. People call the Midway the “play side of the fair”, some call it “that artery of mirth and sound,” others decry it as corrupting, but everyone who visits the Exposition seems to want to see the Midway first. Alt Nurnberg, or ‘Old Nurenberg’, is the creation of Jacob Schoellkopf and other wealthy Buffalo German-Americans. Let's walk to the peaked tower just visible in the distance.
