interior view of lobby illinois host pavilion century of progress international exposition

Interior view of the lobby inside the Illinois Host Pavilion at the Century of Progress International Exposition in Chicago, Illinois, 1933. The view shows an elaborately patterned floor with the official state seal, an information desk, and clusters of flags (in individual plastic coverings) hanging from wall mountings. The building, located just east of Soldier Field and west of the North Lagoon between 14th Street and 16th Street, was designed by C. Herrick Hammond. Photographed by Ken Hedrich.
