I came across these tiny, tiny photos recently and almost passed them over because they were small and hard to see. But the odd structures in the images somehow caught my attention and upon closer examination, it appeared as if they were someone's snapshots of the 1933 Century of Progress World's Fair, held on Chicago's lake front. Small as they are, you can still make out some of the Fair's buildings and Moderne features.

I must confess that I'm not familiar with the scenes in the smallest two photos, so maybe an eagle-eyed PrairieMod reader familiar with the Fair can enlighten us as to what they are.
