This photo shows a view of the Court of Honor from the Peristyle Water Gate. At the end of the basin is the Administration Building. To the right are the Manufactures, Electricity, and Mines Buildings respectively from foreground to background. To the left are the Agriculture and Machinery Buildings. The Grand Basin is 1300 feet long and 300 feet wide. You could fit eight football fields in a space of that size.
