Wardell, thanks for the ID of the boathouse. Do you know why it was torn down? What army base are you talking about? Where was it located?
Separately, does anyone know if any other bridges and/or any other infrastructure currently in Jackson Park is an actual remnant of the Fair, besides the Darrow Bridge itself? I never knew features like the Darrow bridge had actually survived the fair.
While some of the geographical formations like the Wooded Island, the lagoon and the Palace of Fine Arts (at least in Replica) have survived, I did not know any bridges or other infrastruture remained because the configuration of the park is so different from that shown on maps of the fair.
I'd be interested in knowing whether other features survive. Thank you.
