A Century of Progress was the name given to the 1933 World's Fair, held along the lakefront of Chicago from June 1-November 1, 1933, and May 26-October 31, 1934. This was the second international exposition held in Chicago during a 40 year period: the first was the World's Columbian Exposition, which in 1893 played host to over 27 million people in Jackson Park on the city's South Side. A Century of Progress was equally as popular. The fairgrounds bordered 37th Street on the South and Roosevelt Road on the North. Northerly Island, today known as Meig's Field, also figured prominently as a site for fair buildings and activities
