Chicago World's Fair. This replica of Fort Dearborn, one of Chicago's most thrilling historical monuments, was constructed on the shore of Lake Michigan at Twenty-Sixth Street, for the 1933 Century of Progress Exposition. Near here stood the original Fort Dearborn, and still nearer occurred, in 1812, the massacre by Indians of the brave inhabitants of the Fort. The picture shows, left to right, the officers' barracks, a corner of the blockhouse, the powder magazine, soldiers' barracks. The corners of the two other barracks appear on either side of the picture
