W. F. McLaughlin Co. : “The Court of Honor – Chicago World’s Fair” (c. 1893)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

For its 1893 World’s Fair, Chicago constructed a Beaux-Arts “White City” with shimmering basins and waterways that visitors could travel by gondola or electric launch. This contemporary view by the W. F. McLaughlin Co. looks northeast over the Grand Basin from Administration Building, with the M’Monnies’ Fountain in the foreground and the statue of the Republic in the distance. Commemorating the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s arrival in the New World, the Exposition attracted 751,026 visitors, setting a new world record for attendance at an outdoor event.
