Description (Brief)
This reading game was made to coincide with the World’s Columbian Exposition, a world’s fair that opened in Chicago in 1893. Commonly known as the “White City,” the fair was essential in establishing Chicago’s image as an economic and cultural force. An enormous success, the exposition hosted 27 million visitors in its five-month run.
