Cool CHICAGO l Beacon of Progress l 1,500 FT / 457 M l circa 1900 | NEVER BUILT

A 1,500 foot stone tower, proposed for Jackson Park
on the site of the 1893 World's Fair.

The architect was MIT professor Desire Despradelle.



A 12' by 16' foot version of Despradelle's drawing hung
for several years in the atrium of the old Roger's Building
on Boylston Street in Boston.

WHERE IS IT NOW? Let's try to find it.














If anyone has more information on this 1900 proposal please post.
