    OK, I have been slowly but surely been amassing some artifacts from Chicago's World Columbian Exposition and today I came across a fascinating website that's sort of an "exploded" picture souvenir book in high resolution scans of photos from the exposition's attractions. Enjoy-

    I don't think so. I believe they was ALL built just for the Expo and most, if not all were temporary.
