Thank you for posting a feature related to the fire on May 3 every year.  Should never be forgotten.

Two other sites I'd note: the painting Bonnetheau rescued is on display in the Merrill House (with a hole burned through it) and the MOSH has some actual debris from the fire on display in the Currents of Time exhibit.
The tourist would realize at once that he had struck the Land of Flowers - the City Beautiful!
