CHICAGO EXPOSITION EXHIBIT

Electric Transformers

ca. June 1933

Little children play with doll houses but so does Donald R. Dohner, staid director of the art-engineering department of the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company.

He is setting the miniature of a huge power transformer in its place in the doll house model of the Westinghouse exhibit for the "Century of Progress" Exposition which opens in Chicago on June 1.

The World Fair transformer model will be 35 feet high, 28 feet long and 20 feet wide. It will be a full scale reproduction of the original which is in service in northern New Jersey.

The Fair model will be hollow and will contain exhibits of violet rays and air conditioning.
