World's Fair Gardens: "Ride Your Hobby on Treasure Island" by Lou Richardson [article in] Better Homes & Gardens, volume 17 number 6, February, 1939

Des Moines: Meredith Publishing Company, 1939. Cover story (announced there; cover illustration per se simply an indoor flower-arranger at work) begins with a double-spread on pp20-21 with one half-page b&w photo and ten vignettes and a tiny map of central California, thereafter comprised of 4 or 5 full columns of text scattered in the back of the magazine. Complete issue, 88p with color wraps; front wrap is near fine, back is dampstained with offset blue (no bleed-through), staples are exposed front and back and are quite rusty with a little migration; spine panel has inch-long chips at head and tail. As is, a fair to good-only copy. Richardson's story records some talk with Julius L. Girod, chief of the expo's Bureau of Horticulture, but is mostly general tourist stuff.
