The 1893 Columbian Exposition (Chicago World's Fair)

More than 27 million people attended the exposition during its six-month run. Its scale and grandeur far exceeded the other world's fairs, and it became a symbol of the emerging American Exceptionalism, much in the same way that the Great Exhibition became a symbol of the Victorian era United Kingdom.





B.W. Kilburn, Littleton, New Hampshire. Some of the views appear milky, they are not faded but are as Kilburn produced them. They view much better than they scan.
