A brief overview of the fair.

The fair presented many innovative architecture techniques

Images and descriptions of exhibits from all over the world.

Focusing on the issue of honoring Jean  Baptiste Pointe de Saible

This postcard was given to us earlier this semester as a beginning point for further research.  Of the millions of directions we could choose to go in from here, we decided to focus on the details of the fair itself.  Here we have compiled information on the architecture presented, the international exhibitions, and issues of race in the fair itself.
