Official Views Of The World's Columbian Exposition   By:

Book cover

First Page:

[Transcribers notes: A few images have been repaired where damage was obvious, such as specks on the original plate or voids in the printing process. A gamma correction of 0.8 has been applied to compensate for aging of the ink.

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.

To see the full detail of the 4800X3200 image in your browser, turn off "Resize large images to fit" or "Enable automatic image resizing".

Files names XXX.jpg are the original 600 DPI, XXX 25.jpg are 25% of the original (150 DPI), and XXX 12 are 12% (75 DPI).

Chapter V, "The World's Columbian Exposition" from Volume V of "History of the United States" by E. Benjamin Andrews (1905) is included to provide a contemporary description of the Exposition. ]
