The Chicago Exposition Building, in which the coming exhibit and tournament in that cityare to be held, is by all means the finest structure for the purpose in the world. It is the largestroofed area in the world without interior supports, even the mighty Agricultural Hall in Londonbeing almost insignificant in comparison. In length it is 1,000 feet; in width, 240 feet, and inheight, to the base of the flag-staff, 160 feet. The location of this leviathan is one of its principalcharms. It stands on the lake front, 100 yards from the starting-point of the great Pullman road-race. To the south lies Michigan Avenue, a magnificent boulevard for upward of a dozen milesdirectly south ; to the north lie the approaches to Dearborn Avenue, an asphalt road three milesin length, and the Lake Shore Drive, another famous boulevard, connecting the city with LincolnPark ; to the west is Jackson Street, the most popular of West Side routes, running to Garfield,Humboldt and Douglas parks.
