"Glass Exhibition Building"

This is an original 1876 color lithograph of the Glass Exhibition Building at the 1876 Centennial Exposition. Erected by Gillinder & Sons of Philadelphia, the exhibits within the building included fully-glass steam engines; a glass locomotive capable of drawing two glass cars at the rate of seven miles an hour; and a lady's bonnet of spun glass.

The Centennial International Exhibition of 1876, was held at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Each lithograph in this collection is accompanied by an original one-page letterpress supplement with historical information (including dimensions and costs) describing the pictured building. Most images have the artist's signature embedded in the image and all have the lithograph publisher's imprint in the bottom right corner of the image.
