Subscribe for more! http://bit.ly/JansonYouTube Many of the world's greatest achievements in art, architecture, science, technology and culture are unveiled there. The grounds were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, famous for his design of New York City's Central Park, and constructed under the supervision of Daniel Burnham. The Fair was an engineering marvel. On opening day, President Grover Cleveland depressed a golden telegraph key which sent the first courses of electricity throughout the Fair powering fountains, machines, turbines, electric railways and thousands of lights. It was the first use of electricity on such a massive scale. In addition, fairgoers enjoy the Midway Plaisance where a one-mile boulevard of fun offers guilty pleasures such as belly dancing, street fighting, camel riding and beer. Nearly 28 million visit the "White City," which inspires future innovators like Henry Ford, Walt Disney and Frank Lloyd Wright, and debuts the Ferris Wheel and Cracker Jack(R). Narrator Gene Wilder is famous for such movies as Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. "We selected Gene as narrator because of his unique ability to bring out both the dramatic and comic elements in the Fair," said Bussler.

Wow, so do you have the same views? Pretty ignorant. If you still have the same stance I must say it was a FAIR on American soil. We don't want your Neo-Communist utopia of poverty and oppression, sorry.

@keltonaj What a horrible thing to say. This was a brilliant and magnificent piece of the world's history showing the beauty of industry and the power of freedom.

the 1893 expo was propaganda by the american elite to convince the population to assent to arrogant empire building.
