This photo was taken from the upper deck of the Manufactures Building at the Southwest corner. It shows the western end of the Grand Basin and Court of Honor. Across the basin from left to right are the Agriculture, Machinery, and Administration Buildings. Photos like this one demonstrate how each building is designed to complement all of the others. Because it was designed and built at the same time, the fair represented a beautiful, clean, and orderly city that didn't exist anywhere.
