This "master plan" view shows the LWE planners' vision of what the Fair would look like. By the time the plan was transformed into actual brick and mortar, some elements had been eliminated, e.g., the tower at Spanish Plaza, and others had been add ed, e.g., the amphitheater at Julia Street.

Morial Convention Center
