Some of the Chicago Fair made it to Boston. The signs of the Zodiac in the entrance hall of the Boston Public Library were originally made for the New York Pavilion in Chicago. The Dutch House, built for the Van Hooten Chocolate Company, was moved to Brookline, Massachusetts and still stands on Netherland Road.
I have a 1893 World's Fair art series collection of 11x14 photos published by N. D. Thompson of St. Louis in a series of 16 publications..want to sell them
