    Eighteen foreign children, most of them from the Orient, making their homes on the Pay Streak at the exposition, attired in their native garb and paraded around the grounds in rickshaws as if royal personages, produced an attraction at the fair this afternoon different from anything that has been given heretofore. Each child carried the flag of the nation he represents and while at dinner at the Nikko Cafe had the name of the country of which he is a native conspicuously displayed above his chair. There were children from Japan, China, Assyria, Egypt, Morocco, Alaska, Hawaii, Siam, Labrador, Siberia and other countries, and Kuchi Beki, caterer arranged to have distinctive dishes of each nationality on the big table.(Seattle Times, 7/24/1909)On verso of photograph: Children of All Nations Day. less
