The Illinois building contained a large-scale model of the city of Chicago. It consisted of all 450,000 buildings, hand-painted and placed in their exact location. The diorama showed public buildings, parks, waterways, railroad terminals and yards, elevated rail systems and utility networks. The Illinois building was the showplace of modern Illinois and its rich history.
