The Chicago World’s Fair celebrated the centenary of Chicago and was held in Burnham Park along Lake Michigan in the Near South Side neighborhood. After the fair’s successful run in 1933, it was renewed for an additional year, closing in October 1934, after which the fairgrounds were disassembled. As such, this model remains as a document of a building that no longer exists.
