Dig even deeper into the White City with this ultra-massive photographic adventure that looks inside the buildings and follows the crowds of people who were there!
The World’s Fair of 1893 was the greatest event on earth that entertained more than 27,000,000 people summer. We’ve seen the beautiful exterior photographs of the Ferris Wheel, the Grand Basin, the Court of Honor, and the enormous Manufacturers and Liberal Arts Building. This second installment of the acclaimed Ultra Massive series goes inside the massive structures of the World’s Columbian Exposition to showcase the long-lost event that changed the world from the inside out.
Incredible rare photographs, drawings, and prints – many of which have never been published before – highlight the people at the fair and the interiors of its greatest buildings like Machinery Hall, the Manufacturers Building and the Electricity Building. Admire the crowds, the workmanship, the displays and the miles of machinery that set the stage for the 20th century.
Written and designed by filmmaker and writer, Mark Bussler (Expo: Magic of the White City, Westinghouse, Classic Game Room), this stylish book is filled with crisp, black and white imagery of the Fair that features rare photographs from period sources and a private collection.
