1933 Chicago World's Fair

SAVING A CENTURY OF PROGRESS: This bird’s-eye view painting from the George Glazer Gallery is pictured in a double-page spread in “Saving a Century of Progress,” a new book about five homes in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore that were originally built for the Chicago Century of Progress World’s Fair in 1933. It appears in the book with this caption:

“This stunning aerial view looking south over the exposition was created by H.M. Pettit at the behest of the World’s Fair board in 1932 and revised for the fair in 1934. The image was reproduced in fair guides, postcards, even on jigsaw puzzles.”
