The White City - Book of Postcards
The World's Columbian Exposition, celebrating the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' 1492 landing in America, was actually held in 1893, after three years of intensive preparation. Forty-six nations participated in the exposition, which cost more than $28 million and drew almost 26 million visitors at an admission price of 50 cents.
The thirty fascinating images in this book of postcards, from the collection of the Chicago History Museum, document the excitement and innovation of this historic exposition. These top-quality reproductions are now bound together in a handy, artful collection. Easy to remove and produced on heavy card stock, these stunning postcards are a delight to the sender and receiver.
Note: postcards are over-sized and may require additional postage.
