1893 Chicago Worlds Fair Liberal Arts Building, German Gates Photo Lantern Slide For Sale
This is a photographic glass magic lantern slide, black and white, labeled, "Liberal Arts Building, Interior--Entrance to German Section, The Gates." The Manufactures and Liberal Arts Building, designed by George B. Post is shown here. If this building were standing today, it would rank second in volume and third in footprint on List of largest buildings. The World's Columbian Exposition (the official shortened name for the World's Fair: Columbian Exposition, also known as The Chicago World's Fair) was a World's Fair held in Chicago in 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' arrival in the New World in 1492. Chicago bested New York City; Washington, D.C.; and St. Louis for the honor of hosting the fair. The fair had a profound effect on architecture, the arts, Chicago's self-image, and American industrial optimism. Magic Lantern Slides are one of the best untapped resources for antique photographs there are. Slides were usually discarded after a relatively short period of use so are difficult to find. Slide is 3 1/4" x 4", is in very good condition, and can be viewed by projecting, holding it to the light, or placing it on a light box. This slide can be made into a photograph or poster. If you would like information on having that done AFTER you purchase the view, please let me know. You can learn more about magic lanterns and slides by going to www.magiclanternsociety.org. I offer a reduced postage amount for multiple items IF you email for the cost. Please remember to do this otherwise you will overpay. Thanks for your business, Bob
