About This Image

The 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago was billed as a world's fair to surpass all previous world's fairs. Conceived to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Columbus' first voyage to the New World, the fair became a triumphant celebration of America's Gilded Age of optimism and innovation. From May 1 to October 31 of that year, more than 27 million people visited the 633-acre exposition in Jackson Park known as "The White City."
