This slideshow gives us a look at some of the majestic exhibitions that were presented at this singular event. Most of the photos available were centered on the south end where the larger buildings were congregated. We take a look at the midway and a ride on the Ferris Wheel before entering the fair. Once we get on top of the Liberal Arts Building we look south then move from east to west then turn north before circling back.
"The Devil In The White City" by Eric Larsen is a great book and gives the history behind the Columbian Exposition of 1893.
There are a couple of great maps that we provide links to.
The Chicago Encyclopedia has this one we used to place the photos.
This one is of the Midway Plaisance is from the ITT library.
