Scottish National Exhibition, 1908

The Scottish National Exhibition in Saughton Park, Edinburgh, ran for only six months, opening on May 1 1908 and closing on October 31, 1908. Admission was 10 shillings 6 pence (roughly $20 in today's dollars, adjusted for inflation) and 3.5 million people visited the Exhibition. The fair included an Incubator Baby Institute, as did many exhibitions of that era, which appears to have used the Lion incubators and was directed by M. Ehrlich.
