Too awesome to excerpt

The official souvenir program for the inaugural ceremonies of William McKinley, March 4, 1901 is so awesome that I can't even single out pieces of it without feeling terrible for leaving some things out. The text, the photos, the ads, the illustrations in the ads, the typefaces... AND on page 85, there's a write-up of what they imagine the inauguration of 2001 will have been like, replete with flying vehicles and a wildly expanded American map.

Seriously, just click it and flip through slowly.
