Dr. Martin Arthur Couney (whose credentials were suspect) operated exhibits of premature infants in incubators at the Berlin Exposition of 1896, at Earls Court Exhibition Centre in London, at the Trans-Mississippi Exposition in Omaha, Nebraska in 1898, at the World's Fair in Paris in 1900, at the World's Fair in Buffalo, New York in 1901, and most famously, for many years at Coney Island, New York, where he charged 25 cents to view the babies so parents would not have to pay for their children's medical care.
