Stroll The White City

The Chicago Tribune has a gallery with some long-forgotten photographs of the Chicago Exposition of 1893. It’s a visual treat for Victorian era enthusiasts. And while you’re at it, I highly recommend the book “Devil In The White City,” a true-crime story about a serial murderer n Chicago at the time of the fair.
