Burnham had this cabin constructed on the Wooded Island of the World's Columbian Exposition (some fair buildings are visible
behind the cabin) so that he could literally live within this all-consuming project. The photo appears in Charles Moore's
biography of Burnham, along with a caption that mentions the "artists' revels," a reference to the sometimes high-spirited
doings among Burnham and his fellow architects and artists before they went to bed on the cots in the cabin. "Merrily sped
the hours with jests and stories and practical jokes by the painters and sculptors," Moore writes, "and on Sunday evenings
there was music by a band made up from Theodore Thomas's Orchestra, with the master himself to direct them."
