***FOTWC Partners denotes organizations who help support our mission and/or organizations and individuals who have a similar interest in educating on and preserving the history of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition which took place in and around Jackson Park in Chicago from May 1, 1893 to October 30, 1893***
The pleasures it details range from the respectable (theater, architecture, parks, churches and synagogues) to the illicit—drink, gambling, and sex. With a wink and a nod, the book decries vice while offering precise directions for the indulgence of any desire. In this newly annotated edition, Chicagoans Paul Durica and Bill Savage—who, if born earlier, might have written chapters in the original—provide colorful context and an informative introduction to a wildly entertaining journey through the Chicago of 120 years ago.
A huge thanks to Printing Center USA for providing our first annual Columbian Exposition Calendar and hopefully many more to come!
