Plan of the Southern Exposition with Central Park, 1883

The Southern Exposition, originally scheduled to last about two months, was such a success (in those first couple of months, there were well over 700,000 paid admissions) that the expo was extended.  It closed four years later in 1887.  In this plan, the park is on the left.   (Enlargement)
