This is an original 1893 halftone print of the Hall of Mines and Mining at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. It was designed by architect S. S. Beman of Chicago.

The World's Columbian Exposition (also known as 1893 Chicago World's Fair) was held from May to October 1893 in honor of the 400th anniversary of Columbus' discovery of the New World. In competition with many other cities, Chicago was finally designated the official site and the Exposition was built on 630 acres in and around Jackson Park. It was a spectacular display of progress and prosperity, and included among its many wonders were electrical displays, exhibits from other countries, and a popular amusement area on the Midway Plaisance with carnival rides-- among them the first Ferris Wheel. Most of the fair's architecture was based on classical design and covered with white paint which gave the area around the Court of Honor the name "The White City."
