The World's Columbian Exposition - Paperback Book
By Norman Bolotin and Christine Laing
This exceptional chronicle takes readers on a visual tour of the glittering "white city" that emerged along the swampy south shore of Lake Michigan as a symbol of Chicago's rebirth and pride twenty-two years after the Great Fire.
This unique volume tells the story of the World's Columbian Exposition from its conception and construction to the scientific, architectural and cultural legacies it left behind, inviting readers to imagine what it would have been like to spend a week at the fair.
