At a Glance
Four photographs of the International Exhibition in Philadelphia, 1876, showing Horticultural Hall, Main Hall (also called Industrial Hall), Memorial Hall, and the Michigan Building with the Detroit Light Guard posed in front of it. Also included are seven photographs of clouds (at the time cameras were not able to expose both buildings and clouds at the same time so the negatives of the clouds were combined with the negatives of the photographs of the International Exhibition to create one print). Also, two photographs of the sculptures "The Forced Prayer" by Pietro Guarnerio and "Religious Liberty" by Moses Ezekiel.
