Panoramic view from West [enlarge] « previous 6 of 16 next »

This panoramic photograph shows the fair from just outside the Southwestern corner of the grounds. The photo provides a good sense of the scale of the fair. However, this is not what we would consider the fair's "good side". The most prominent feature of the photo is the train tracks leading into the fair's train station. The fair's Railroad Station was designed by Daniel Burnham, the lead architect of the fair. This photo shows the back of the Railroad Station and the many railroad tracks that led into the fair. The design for the Railroad Station influenced the design of Union Station in Washington, D.C.
