Beautiful Victoria Falls was re-created in the atmosphere of Darkest Africa." There was a tourist bureau for information about excursions to South Africa and Rhodesia. Murals, artifacts and even native music filled the air, making a visit to this exhibit rewarding and informational.
South Rhodesia lowered its flag from the concession because of the “depraved and obscene shows nearby.” The country’s motto “Live in the dignity of man” was also removed.
Every four minutes the sun rose and proceeded to midday and then set into full nightfall. More than 100 stars were shown in the night sky and the “Southern Cross,” not seen in the Northern Hemisphere, was added for authenticity.
Silent movie star Ramon Navarro stopped by the exhibit to pick up some brochures for his upcoming visit to Southern Rhodesia.
Mrs. Livingston Wilson, the only surviving daughter of famed explorer David Livingston, brought along her father’s diary noting his “discovery” of the Falls.
Lionel Lines engines were used in the display, and also at the Cuban exhibit’s diorama.
