Venezuela at the Exhibition Chicago 1893

The small and graceful structure, and the presentation of the country's resources, are very commendable to the ambition and energy of this small republic when one knows the recent troubles that the state has experienced, as well as the state of its treasury.

The building is only a story of height, and is built in white marble in the Greco-Roman style of architecture.

The elegant facade is adorned with three beautiful towers, from the one on the left stands a large statue of the life of Christopher Columbus, and from the one on the right one of Bolivar.

Prehistoric relics, mineral and vegetable relics, fine arts products and manufactures are presented.

The flag carried by Pizarro during the conquest of Peru is shown, along with many other historical curiosities.
