They are incredible photographs.  I've often thought that the Century of Progress was one of the most beautifully designed expositions ever held.  A site located near a body of water makes all of the difference.  The GGIE and Expo 67 are other examples.  But the Chicago fair was truly spectacular and these prints are wonderful.  It had to be heart breaking to have to be involved in the demolition of this exposition.

I will say it again; that fair was incredible.  It was so rich with the quality of its attractions and the beauty of its setting.  I love the shot of FDR and Eleanor along with the scene of the dirigible.  It's amazing to consider this exposition prospered during the darkest year of the Depression--1933.  But these photos explain a part of the reason.  The place was full of hope and energy.
