18. "A view of the Lagoon theater, grandstand and the John R. Thompson twin restaurants as seen from the Hiram Walker 'Doodlebug' in the north lagoon at A Century of Progress. The theater has been roofed and a permanent stage built on spiles has replaced the roofless stands and floating stage of 1933. The changes were made because of the extreme popularity of the theater last year. At the left may be seen the completed unit of the Thompson restaurants, which began serving food today."
