Spectacle in the White City

Over 27 million people visited the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago, a fair that influenced the direction of architecture across the U.S.  Photographer C.D. Arnold captured the fair, and his images in this volume present a tribute to the “White City” of shining Beaux-Arts buildings.  The classical Greek and Roman design of the fair’s major structures defined the course of American monumental building for decades to come, and the text accompanying these historic photographs provides fascinating commentary on the event’s influence on American building styles and tastes.
