Century of Progress Photograph Sale

Whoa, baby--do I ever wish I had a few thousand bucks burning a hole in my pocket right now. The Museum of Science and Industry has de-accessioned thousands of art photographs, most of which were originally displayed at the 1933 Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago. And they're now up for sale, with prices ranging from $300 to $4,000. Although on first glance I don't see any big-name photographers, there are oodles of beautiful images throughout the collection. Lovely indeed.
