white city lecture

so we had an interesting lecture on Sunday at the Museum of Science and Industry on the White City (Columbian Exposition of 1893) it was a three D computer animation of a fly over and walk through the fair-

I would say it is about 1/3 done at this point (after a mere ten years of work LOL) but what they have is excellent-

after the lecture we stopped for a late lunch at the Hyde Park location of BBQ Supply for a brisket burger and a side of brisket #YUM

Seeing the animated tour of the fair I recalled all the great slides from the City Beautiful lecture of my skyscraper class this spring- 

this first one of the transportation building I believe even came from the work we saw at the lecture  last weekend- 

so quite an interesting lecture (actually two interesting lectures)  and then on to the next two fabulous dinners LOL....
