The Midway, looking south
The Midway – City of a Million Lights – revives vivid memories of the Fair of ’93. You encounter its first flaring banner when you turn south from the Twenty-third Street entrance. Visit it by day, and you may think of brilliant bands of color connecting two great sections of the Fair; at night, you might think of a gorgeous scintillating trinket. Though such are the effects achieved with colored, and modern white lighting, that even in this area of spectacles and sideshows, strange and unusual attractions, and circus cacophony, beauty has been attained.
