1. "Great Hall of the massive Hall of Science at Chicago's 1933 World's Fair -- A Century of Progress exposition, which opens May 27th and closes November 1st. Ceilings, panels, balconies, and stairways of the building embody new and superb examples of modern architectural design. Here the spirit of man's scientific achievement during the past 100 years, the predominant note of the Exposition -- finds concrete expression. The hall of Science houses a wealth of exhibits by industries closely related to the basic industries, with sections devoted to biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics, physics, and medicine."

2. "Three new musical instruments, an electrical violin, a clavier, and an electrical guitar, attract much comment from spectators at the outdoor science theater in the court of the Hall of Science at the World's Fair. The instruments are the invention of Lloyd Loar, lecturer on the physics of music at Northwestern University, who is seated at the clavier. The other musicians are Charles Stein (left) and Ruth Brenner (right). The instruments produce an electrical current which is amplified and converted into sound by the loudspeaker shown in the picture."
