  1. Today we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of Robert Swain Peabody on February 22, 1845. Peabody was a cofounder of the Boston architectural firm of Peabody & Stearns, designer of Machinery Hall. Read about his contribution to the fair in this article: https://worldsfairchicago1893.com/2018/02/22/happy-birthday-architect-robert-peabody/
  2. Ive been uploading scans from an old copy of "PICTURESQUE WORLD’S FAIR. AN ELABORATE COLLECTION OF COLORED VIEWS" that is disintegrating each time I open the book. If you are interested in seeing the images and text, please visit: https://worldsfairchicago1893.com/category/wce/reprints/
