Description:

From Frederick Langford's Flag Cancel Encyclopedia

"The Pure Food Exposition was a yearly event held in Mechanic's Hall Boston, apparently chiefly for Boston Exhibitors. The American Postal Machines Co. a Boston enterprise, furnished and exhibited one year, with a demonstration canceling machine with the flag die. Of course postally used specimens were not made, as there was no postal station at this exposition, but philatelically-made impressions were run which 'cancel' genuine postage stamps."
