Coming Down The Pike...


Guess where the expression "coming down the pike" became popularized?

Yet another bit of history that owes its origin to the 1904 World's Fair held in St. Louis in present day Forest Park... the term being used for the main walkway known as "The Pike" renowned to be the most extravagant entertainment area ever constructed at that time. Visitors were so stunned they would say "there was always something new coming down The Pike."
