In the midst of the depression, Chicago demonstrated its vitality by creating the Century of Progress exposition. Located where Meigs Field and McCormick Place now stand, the exposition's gates opened in 1933. When they closed in 1934, 40 million people had had a preview of what the future would offer in transportation, housing and entertainment. The event is commemorated by the fourth star in the Chicago flag.
