UIC logo Century of Progress World's Fair, 1933-1934 (University of Illinois at Chicago)


"Ford's 'Drama of Transportation' in New World's Fair. This is a conception by Hugh Ferriss of what the interior of the great Ford Building will look like when A Century of Progress opens in Chicago May 26. In this building, 900 feet long, the major portion of a $1,500,000 exhibit, will be dramatized the story of the contributions of science, industry and agriculture to the modern automobile. Opposite the structure will be a free park with seats for concert and entertainment programs."
