Several issues of a Fair Corporation subscription magazine (from 1891)
presented several 'centerpiece' ideas for the fair.

One a blatant ripoff of the Eiffel Tower.



Another one had a crystal palace-like base with a tower.



There was this behemoth.



Also, an idea to go in the opposite direction (as in...underground)




I wish I had more information and better scans.
I imagine the Ryerson Library has issues of these magazines.
