21. "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."

This is one of the 49 beautiful pictures hung out of the 360 entries in the recent contest sponsored at the Hall of Photography by the Miniature Camera Club of Chicago."

23. "The temple is a reproduction of one of the buildings of the Monjas, or Nunnery, at Uxmal, Yucatan--a striking example of the architecture of the Mayas. The Monjas is thought to have been the nunnery of the vestal virgins, who attended the sacred fires in the temples of their gods, and who were put to death if they broke their vow of chastity. The barbaric facade of the temple is decorated with relief carvings of the intertwining bodies of the feathered serpent god Kukulcan. Fantastic, grotesque masks done in the brilliant colors that characterize Mayan architecture, adorn the walls."
