This is an unused card with a divided back. The view is of the German Building and Lagoon in Jackson Park in Chicago. The German Building was constructed for the Columbian Exposition of 1893 (Chicago World's Fair of 1893). The German building had a distinctive architectural style that stood out from the more classical architectural styles that predominated in the majority of the buildings in the fair. The German building stood from 1893-1925. After the fair, this building was a restaurant and ice cream establishment. In 1925 it was demolished after being damaged by fire. The card is in good condition for its age.
