1930's Diorama of Fort Dearborn Chicago Illinois Century of Progress

Here is a cased diorama of the Fort Dearborn, which was located beside the Chicago River, and was first built in 1803. It was named after Henry Dearborn, the Secretary of War. The figures are hand fashioned and painted, as is the fort. The background painting is done in oil on the interior of the metal surround. There is a small bulb that illuminates the diorama, hidden behind the fort. We believe this was done for the Century of Progress in 1933.
