The Electricity Building at The World's Fair: Columbian Exposition. This was 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. I just finished reading a book about this (The Devil In the White City, by Erik Larson), so I'm frolicing in seeing more photos of the Fair right now.

The "White City" Chicago Worlds Fair 1893 - obsessed with the 1893 fair. Wish all those old buildings were still standing.

First Ferris Wheel at 1893 World Fair in Chicago. Each car held 60 people. Another fun fact: it was intended to outdo the Eiffel Tower in size and design. #maryslocalmarket
