This is an antique Albert-type print of "Machinery Hall", from the Chicago Columbian Exposition, 1893. The grand scale of this time-limited event, is truly awesome.  The magnificent  MacMonnies Fountain, ornate pedestrian bridge, buildings, and waterway,  is reminiscent of something you might see in Europe.  

Inside the elaborate Hall was acres of all kinds of modern machinery, exhibited for competition. The Obelisk in the background, was a reproduction of Cleopatra's Needle, which is now a prominent object in Central Park.

Condition:  On high quality paper and suitable for framing.
