Official Views Of The World's Columbian Exposition

The index has been moved from the back of the book to the front and linked to the named pages.

The images shown are compressed to 600X400 to load quickly and fit on any computer screen. Click on the 1200 below the picture to see the 1200X800 image. Click on 4800 or the image itself to see the original 4800X3200 image and marvel at the detail of these 1893 photographs. Signs and flags are easily read. The only technical flaw is the long exposure to produce the crisp detail and depth of field. Occasionally the moving leg of a pedestrian is blurred. Find the man mowing the grass in plate 63.
