"A conception by Hugh Ferriss, a noted New York artist, of how the Ford Exhibition building now being erected at the Chicago World's Fair will look at night in its blaze of light. The building is nine hundred feet long and ten stories in height at its center. It faces upon a five acre park fronting Lake Michigan. Albert Kahn of Detroit is the architect, and Walter Dorwin Teague of New York, the industrial designer, is in charge of the interior display."

"Night view of the Illinois Host Building, where the state of Illinois welcomes guests from her sister states to A Century of Progress -- Chicago's 1933 World's Fair."
"North approach to the Hall of Science at Chicago's 1933 World's Fair -- A Century of Progress Exposition, which opens May 27th and continues until November 1st. The beautiful carillon tower rising above the Hall is equipped with mellow-toned chimes that send their music floating out over the grounds throughout the day and night. Inside the Hall of Science, Exposition visitors view dramatic action exhibits of industries closely related to the basic sciences. The building comprises superb examples of modern architecture. It is U-shaped with two arms reaching down to a sparkling lagoon, and enclosing a court of three acres. In the center of its upper terrace is a circular well, forming the base of a court colorful with pools, fountains and flower-gardens."
"North facade of the Hall of Science -- Chicago's 1933 World's Fair. At night the twelve pylons, arranged in a semi-circle about an electric fountain, are illuminated in red. The carillon tower shown in the distance is lighted in a mysterious blue. The entire building is a symphony of color in the modern manner."
