Harriet is a serif typeface. It's sort-of a contemporary reimagining of Baskerville with a dash of Scotch Roman. Blah blah type history blah. Anyway, Harriet is a versatile family with two optical sizes and a range of weights. The Display styles are exuberant enough to sparkle at large sizes, while the Text styles are more restrained, with a sturdiness more appropriate for every-day use in text.

The Worlds Columbian Exposition the official shortened name for the Worlds Fair: Columbian Exposition,also known as The Chicago Worlds Fair was a Worlds Fair held in Chicago in 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbuss arrival in the New World in 1492. Chicago bested New York City; Washington, D.C.; and St. Louis for the honor of hosting the fair. The fair had a profound effect on architecture, the arts, Chicagos self-image, and American industrial optimism.
The Chicago Columbian Exposition was, in large part, designed by Daniel Burnham and Frederick Law Olmsted. It was the prototype of what Burnham and his colleagues thought a city should be. It was designed to follow Beaux Arts principles of design, namely French neoclassical architecture principles based on symmetry, balance, and splendor. The exposition covered more than 600 acres or 2.4 km, featuring nearly 200 new but purposefully temporary buildings of predominately neoclassical architecture, canals and lagoons, and people and cultures from around the world.
More than 27 million people equivalent to about half the U.S. population attended the exposition during its six-month run. Its scale and grandeur far exceeded the other world fairs, and it became a symbol of the emerging American Exceptionalism, much in the same way that the Great Exhibition became a symbol of the Victorian era United Kingdom. Dedication ceremonies for the fair were held on October 21, 1892, but the fairgrounds were not actually opened to the public until May 1, 1893.

The fair continued until October 30, 1893. In addition to recognizing the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the New World by Europeans, the fair also served to show the world that Chicago had risen from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire. This had destroyed much of the city in 1871. On October 9, 1893, the day designated as Chicago Day, the fair set a record for outdoor event attendance, drawing 716,881 persons to the fair.
Altogether the acreage covered by roof will be at least one hundred and fifty acres—double the ground occupied at the last Paris Exposition. A Tower of Babel more pretentious than that of Eiffel at Paris; a Water Palace rivaling in effectiveness the architectural monuments of Europe; reproductions of the houses, costumes and occupations of the dwellers in the dead cities of the past as well as of the active living peoples of the world; entertainments for the merely idle and curious as well as for those who seek more than immediate pleasure from their visit;
The Edison display of the latest triumphs of this wizard of the storm cloud — these are but a few of the results already assured. It must be remembered that as islands have risen from the depths of the sea, as the prosperous land of the Hollander was reclaimed from the dominion of old ocean, so Chicago has created all of its possessions. Originally selected for its commercial value, the site of Chicago was unpromising but year by year the indomitable will of its citizens has increasingly caused the desert to blossom like the rose, so that art has provided the beauty denied by nature.

The four days from October 12th to October 16th, have been set aside for the Inaugural Exercises of The World’s Columbian Exposition, and $150,000 has been appropriated for their proper conduct. There will be a military encampment, military parades and reviews, and such pyrotechnic displays as have not hitherto been possible. Niagara Falls, Perry’s Victory on Lake Erie, and the National Colors are some of the set pieces which the skill of the pyrotechnist will present.
The first day, or Memorial Day, will be ushered in by a grand national salute, for noise is essential to American popular enjoyment. At ten o’clock the president of the United States will be received, after which will follow the reception of the thirteen states, these being represented by their Governors together with their escorts. Next in order will be the rendition of the hymn, America, followed by that of the Star-Spangled Banner.
The Commemoration Ode will follow, after which the Director-General will deliver his address. Next in order will be the formal presentation of the buildings, succeeded by the rendition of a cantata, and by the Presentation of the Buildings to the President of the United States. The President of the United States will then make an appropriate address, after which will be given the Dedicatory Oration. The Melujah Chorus followed by a National Salute will close the day’s exercises.

By popular verdict the Administration Building is pronounced the gem and crown of the Exposition Buildings. It is located at the west end of the great court in the southern part of the site, looking eastward, and at its rear are the transportation facilities and depot. The object most conspicuous which will attract the gaze of visitors on reaching the grounds is the Gilded Dome of this great building. This great edifice cost about $550,000. The architect is Richard M. Hunt, of New York, President of the American Institute of Architects, to whose established reputation it is a notable contribution.
It covers an area of 250 feet square and consists of four pavilions 84 feet square, one at each of the four angles of the square and connected by a great central dome 120 feet in diameter and 220 feet in height, leaving at the center of each fagade a recess 82 feet wide, within which are the grand entrances to the building. The general design is in the style of the French renaissance. The first great story is in the Doric order, of heroic proportions, surrounded by lofty balustrade and having the great tiers of the angle of each pavilion crowned with sculpture. The second story, with its lofty and spacious colonnade, is of the Ionic order.
THE AGRICULTURAL BUILDING. McKirn, Meade and White, of New York, are the architects who designed the Agricultural Building, one of the most magnificent of the Exposition Buildings. The style is Classic Renaissance. The building stands near the lake shore and is almost surrounded by the lagoons which lead from the Park to the Lake. It is 800 feet from east to west, and 500 feet from north to south. The north line fronts upon the Pier and Casino: the east front faces a harbor alive with the craft of the pleasure-seekers: the west looks upon a continuation of the northern lagoon.

On either side of the main entrance are mammoth Corinthian pillars, fifty feet in height and five feet in diameter. On each corner as well as at the center rise pavilions, the central one being one hundred and forty-five feet square. Curtains connect the corner pavilions with the main building, so that there is formed a continuous arcade around the building. The main entrance, sixty-four feet in width, leads into a vestibule whence one passes into a rotunda whose diameter is one hundred feet, and which is surmounted by a mammoth glass dome, one hundred and thirty feet in height.
The vestibule is adorned with statuary designed to illustrate agricultural industry, and the main entrances likewise are furnished elaborately with similar groups. The corner pavilions are crowned by domes ninety-six feet high, above which tower groups of statuary, the design being that of three female figures, herculean in proportions, which support an immense globe. The Agricultural Building covers more than nine acres, while the Dairy and Forestry Buildings add 6.2 acres and the total cost has been a million of dollars. South of the Agricultural Building there is yet an annex devoted to the uses of an Agricultural Assembly Hall and to the exhibition of Live Stock.
The general tone or color is light gray stone. The construction, although of a temporary character, is necessarily fire-proof. The main walls are of solid brick, covered with “staff,” architecturally ornamented, while the roof, floors and galleries are of iron. All light is supplied through glass sky-lights in iron frames. The building is located beautifully in the northern portion of the Park, with the south front facing the Lagoon. On the first floor, near the main entrance, is located a Bureau of Information which will furnish visitors with all required information in regard to the Agricultural Exhibits, or indeed in regard to the other features of the Exposition.

It is separated from the Lagoon by beautiful terraces, ornamented with balustrades, with an immense flight of steps leading down from the main portal to the Lagoon, where there is a landing for boats. The north front faces the wide lawn and the group of State buildings. The immediate neighborhood of the building is ornamented with groups of statues, replica ornaments of classic art, such as the Choriagic monument, the “Cave of the Winds,” and other beautiful examples of Grecian art.
The ornamentation also includes statues of heroic and life-size proportions. This building cost between $500,000 and $900,000. The Art Palace was planned in the World’s Fair Construction Department under the eye of Supervising Architect D. II. Burnham, and the details worked out by Chief Designer P. B. Atwood; the annex is sub- stantially, in its facade at least, the outline plan, left by the late consulting architect, George W. Root. The Department of Fine Arts has been subdivided so as to represent the interests included under Architectural Progress, Monumental Decoration, Civil Engineering, Public Buildings, Private Buildings, Foundations and Estimates, and Working Plans for Mason, Carpenter, and Painter.
THE MACHINERY HALL. Machinery Hall, of which Peabody & Stearns, of Boston, are the architects, has been pronounced by many architects second only to the Administration Building in the magnificence of its appearance. This building measures 850x500 feet, and with the Machinery Annex and Power House, cost about $1,000,000. It is located at the extreme south end of the Park, midway between the shore of Lake Michigan and the west line of the Park. It is just south of the Administration Building, and west and across a Lagoon from the Agricultural Building.

In each of these long naves there is an elevated traveling crane running from end to end of the building, for the purpose of moving machinery. These platforms are built so that visitors may view from them the exhibits beneath. The power for this building is supplied from a power-house adjoining the south side of the building. The two exterior sides adjoining the Grand Court are rich and palatial in appearance. All of the buildings on this great plaza are designed with a view to making a grand background for display, and, in order to conform to the general richness of the court and add to the striking appearance, the two facades of the Machinery Hall on the court are rich with colonnades and other features.
The design follows classical models throughout, the detail being followed from the renaissance of Seville and other Spanish towns, as being appropriate to a Columbian celebration. An arcade on the first story admits passage around the buildings under cover, and as in all the other buildings, the front is formed of “staff” colored to an attractive tone; the ceilings are enriched with strong color. A colonnade with a cafe at either end forms the length between Machinery and Agricultural Halls, and in the center of this colonnade is an archway leading to the Cattle Exhibit.
From this portico there extends a view nearly a mile in length down the Lagoon, and an obelisk and fountain in the Lagoon form the southern point of this vista. The Machinery Annex adjoins Machinery Hall on the west, and is an annex in fact, and not a detached structure as at first planned, with entrance by subways under the railway tracks. The Annex covers between four and five acrel and increases the length of the Machinery building to nearly 1,400 feet, thus rendering

The Dairy Building, by reason of the exceptionally novel and interesting exhibits it will contain, is quite sure to be regarded with great favor by World’s Fair visitors in general, while by agriculturists it will be considered one of the most useful and attractive features of the whole Exposition. It was designed to contain not only a complete exhibit of dairy products, but also a Dairy School, in connection with which will be conducted a series of tests for determining the relative merits of different breeds of dairy cattle as milk and butter producers.
The Building stands near the lake shore in the south-eastern part of the park, and close by the general live stock exhibit. It covers approximately half an acre, measuring 95 x 200 feet; is two stories high, and cost $30,000. In design it is of quiet exterior. On the first floor, besides office headquarters, there is in front a large open space devoted to exhibits of butter, and farther back an operating-room, 25x100 feet, in which the Model Dairy will be conducted. On two sides of this room are amphitheater seats capable of accommodating 400 spectators. Under these seats are refrigerators and cold storage rooms for the care of the dairy products.
In 1848 Chicago received its first telegram, the first boat passed through the canal, the first railway train left the city, and the earliest imports were received. In 1849 it will be remembered was the year of the violent breaking out of the California gold fever, and Chicago at once responded to its influence and the Asiatic cholera committed great ravages. The same year witnessed the introduction of gas for street, lighting, while the next year brought provision for a supply of water.

In 1853 the Chicago tunnel was projected, and the same year was marked by the occurrence of strikes which foreshadowed the prostration of industry which occurred in 1877. In 1850 Kansas was the maelstrom of political action and Chicago took an active part in supporting the anti-slavery party. The same year was marked by legal action looking to the raising of the city’s grade and the once wonderful achievements in the matter of raising and moving buildings were the theme of general comment throughout the United States. It was likewise in 1857 that Chicago made her first European exports.
In 1850 Chicago began to realize that satisfactory drainage could never be obtained by temporary expedients and that without adequate drainage the city must puffer from the same influences as formerly made New Orleans so fatal to health. In 1856 the first carefully devised plans of sewerage were carried out. In 1862 it was decided to build the Crib and the famous Tunnel and five years later this Herculean undertaking had been accomplished, not only supplying the city with pure water, but furnishing endless entertainment to pleasure seekers and to the stranger within the gates.
In 1869 the water tower was completed and altogether apart from its utilitarian objects it has through its beauty been the Mecca of many a Chicago pilgrim. Its exterior is described by architects as the “Castellated Gothic,” but its office unlike that of the European castles is to guard the interests of the people. f course, between now and 1893, Chicago will add largely to its hotel accommodations, but the leading hotels of the present will have lost none of their attractions. Many things unite to render the Auditorium (Michigan Avenue between Congress and Jackson Streets) easily chief.
a a - =
As a building, the Auditorium is one of the wonders of Chicago, and adds to its other attractions the possession of a theatre whose seating capacity exceeds that of any other public assembly-room. Every luxury known in the best American hotels (and the best Ameri- can hotels are certainly the best hotels in the world) is to be commanded at the Auditorium. The Chicago Hotel (Dearborn and Adams streets) is to compete with the Auditorium for the highest-class patronage.
The Grand Pacific Hotel (Clark, Jackson and La Salle streets) has long been a favorite with the visitor to Chicago. The Leland (Michigan avenue and Jackson street) has maintained the traditional reputation of the Lelands as keepers of hotels. The Palmer House (State and Monroe streets) was, when built, a seven-days’ wonder, and has continued to be one of the most popular of Chicago’s hotels. The flherman House (Clark and Randolph streets) has been eclipsed by more modern and more showy buildings, but the comfort which it once furnished is still to be found there. The Saratoga Hotel (155 Dearborn street) is among the latest additions to the conveniences of the traveling public.
The Tremont House (Lake and Dearborn streets), like the Sherman House, has been crowded back by its more ambitious competitors, but this very fact recommends it to the experienced traveler. The Richelieu (Michigan avenue between Jackson and Van Buren streets) is, both in location and management, one of the most select hotels of Chicago. The Pullman occupies the top story of the Pullman Building (Michigan avenue and Adams street), and enables one while feasting his palate to feast his eyes upon Lake Michigan and an attractive landscape. The Wellington is a fine new hotel, and is located on Wabash avenue and Jackson street.
