Went to Lincoln Park yesterday, visiting the history museum, conservatory and zoo.

Here's a picture of the miniature diorama of the Columbian Exhibition at night:

Great set of photos!!

I particularly like the models from the Century of Progress of the Travel and Transportation, Thermometer and Chrystler structures. I am also judging from the postcard of the Skyride that those few nuts wre from there too?

Correct!

- If you go to the "all sizes" link and then the "original" link on any of these, you should be able to read the text that is in the picture

Wow! Thanks so much! I had no idea they had this -- any other Columbian Expo dioramas?
