Sprawl reaches its absurd conclusion - Streetsblog posted a piece called "sprawl madness" about two houses with adjoining backyards in suburban Orlando. "If you want to travel the streets from point A on Anna Catherine Drive to point B on Summer Rain Drive, which are only 50 feet apart, you’ll have to go a minimum of seven miles. The trip would take almost twenty minutes in a car, according to Google Maps."...

The cold storage plant at the exposition, which held refrigerated food for vendors, caught fire in July, killing 14 firefighters who were trapped by a collapsing tower. The wood and plaster used in the construction of the buildings were fire hazards. Within a year of the expo closing, most of the "White City" buildings were destroyed by fire.
Read the fantastic true story of what really happened at the World's Fair, in the Book called "The devil in White City" 1893 in Chicago, Illinois, and the fire caught in 1894. I was mesmerized! Couldn't put it down.
I still can't believe The White City caught fire only a year after it was complete. I am so lucky I got to see it.
