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.
