Book Description:The title page is as follows..'Beautiful Scenes of the White City: A portfolio of original copper plate half tones of the World's Fair Farewell edition.

An opportunity lost can never be regained. The World's Fair city has vanished, and all that serves to perpetuate it in the minds of men is fast passing away. The number of this splendid issue of the photographer's art is limited.

A comprehensive Review of the marvelous architectural groups, statuary interiors, lagoons and characteristic scenes from the great Midway Plaisance.


The World's Columbian Exposition or the World's Fairwas a World's Fair held in Chicago in 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1492. Chicago bested New York City; Washington, D.C.; and St. Louis for the honour of hosting the fair. The fair had a profound effect on architecture, the arts, Chicago's self-image, and American industrial optimism.


It was published by Laird & Lee, Chicago in 1894.
