Escape the heat, avoid the crowd See the displays at their best. Be among the first to tell about this greatest of all World's Fairs. THE TRANSPARENT MAM A life-size model of the human body, composed of cellon. The observer visualizes human anatomy as though he possessed X-ray eyes. This is one of the thousands of educational exhibits to be seen at the Century of Progress Exposition at Chicago, June to November, 1933 'Peculiar looking building, isn't it? No windows! 'Broad, flat, surfaces! A complete lack of ornamentation! But wait, at night the magnificent colors leap out of the purple shadows with gorgeous red and orange, mild and deep blues, yellows, greens—the whole spectrum of color against the deep blue night flows with an unrivaled beauty as the flood lights transform It into a rainbow palace. This is the Hall of Science, forming the central unit of the World's Fair group of buildings, and illustrating a new type of architecture. Why should stone in city buildings be drab white—why should brick always be a dingy red—why not color — joyful to the eye?
