It contains glossy black and white halftone photos back-to-back on both sides of the unpaginated pages. It measures 10" x 7" with stiff color wrappers featuring a watercolor rendering of a portion of the main facade of the Travel and Transportation Building. Photos include: country, state, commercial, and general exhibit buildings, Sky Ride, Lagoon, gardens, fountains, Oasis, Hawaiian Village, Midget Village, Panoramas, houses, and Midway, among others. Front and rear covers, title page, and several sample photo pages are shown below.
