World's Columbian Exhibition at Chicago, 1492 - 1892 - 1893
by Chisholm Bros.
Unpaginated. "World's Columbian Exposition. Jackson Park, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. May 1st to October 31st, 1893.... This Exposition, the grandest achievement of its kind, is under the auspices of the United States Government. The participants in the display include not only the fourty-four states and five territories of the American nation, but also nearly every foreign government, making it a wonderfully complete international affair. The city of Chicago, the chosen location, is the commercial capital of the great West, and is the second city in size upon the Western Hemisphere. Its position, at the foot of the Great Lakes, and half way between the Atlantic seaboard and the Mississippi, makes it the transportation center of the United States. Its public and private buildings are the most heroically planned, elaborately finished and extensive of any in America."Keywords: WORLD'S COLUMBIAN EXHIBITION CHICAGO BUILDINGS ARCHITECTURE HISTORY FAIR Large stain to rear board, edges rubbed, pages toned.
