3 renditions of Despradelle’s Beacon of Progress monument, which was proposed for construction on the site of the Columbian Exposition of 1893. Chicago wanted something to rival the Eiffel Tower of Paris. The scale of the monument would have made it the tallest structure in the world (even taller than the Sears Tower, which would not be built for another 70 years). Ultimately, lack of funding was the demise of it’s creation.
