Remembering the Ford Rotunda
Enjoy a photo essay of the Ford Rotunda, first introduced as the centerpiece of the Chicago World's Fair in 1934. The spectacular building was a showpiece with magnificent lighting and sound. The central light beam that was emanating into the sky could be seen miles away. When the exhibition was over, it was moved to Dearborn, MI where it attracted 2 million visitors a year. A fire disaster took it, but is still fondly remembered by the many who had encountered its beauty. This was a tribute to Henry Ford and his family for their foresight in creating a showplace. 44 pages.
