No, this image is looking south over Grant Park. You're thinking of what is now 'Jackson Park' on Chicago's south side:



Most of the 1893 Columbian Expo in Chicago burned to the ground in a somewhat mysterious fire, around 1897 (the structures were only meant to be temporary in the first place; only the Fine Arts building was salvaged, and in the early 1930s, that was rebuilt and extensively renovated to become what is the Museum of Science and Industry):

The Midway Plaisance, directly west of Jackson Park was where the majority of the national pavilions and rides were located during the 1893 Expo. Today, the University of Chicago has taken over the vast majority of lands adjacent to the Midway:

I would have loved to see Sullivan's train station to the Chicago World's Fair still stand today. That building was a masterpiece.
