I am always amazed at the opulence (at least in photos) of early American cities. The buildings that were constructed just for the 1893 World's Fair (the Columbian Exposition) were enormous and grand both inside and out, and I wonder what it would have been like to walk through those exhibit halls and to take in the grandeur of this very hopeful age.
It doesn't take much to find photos from that time. Type "1893 World's Fair" into Google, and you'll find a load of photos and postcards and other other memorabilia of the event. But if you haven't had time to do that, I've pulled together a few photos here of the places and things that are most mentioned in Devil in the White City. Open the attached document to see them all.
