Two things he can't stop on sunday

Description:

An old man labeled "Sabbatarian Bigot," dressed as a Puritan, holds a book labeled "Blue Laws" and stands in front of "Niagara Falls." A man walking with his wife and child suggests that the old man will be no more successful at stopping Niagara Falls, than he will be at preventing the Pan-American Exposition from opening on Sunday. A nearby sign states "Pan-American open on Sunday by order of Supreme Court." In the background, hordes of people stream through the open gates to the Exposition.
