Photo #3 above: Opening Day, May 1, 1893
President Cleveland, attended by his cabinet, appeared upon the grandstand erected in front of the great Administration Building.
Photo #4 above: the Administration Building that could be seen from almost every part of the Exposition Grounds. Its cost was $435,000.00.
I will make more post of some of the different exhibits from various countries attending the Exposition, of which I think might be of interest to some here on CW.
Thanks for looking,
