This is an original 1894 halftone print of some of the statuary at the 1894 California International Midwinter Exposition. Shown in this print are: "Queen Isabella," by Harriet Hosmer; Frank Happersberger's mining group; and "The Cider Press," by Thos. Shields Clarke. Photography by I. W. Taber.

Period Paper is pleased to offer a rare collection of original historical halftone prints of scenes of the 1894 California Midwinter International Exposition, together with other more general scenes of California, by noted San Francisco photographer Isaiah West Taber. Also known as the "Midwinter Exposition" or the "Midwinter Fair" this Exposition was a World's Fair, designed to follow the successful 1893 Chicago World's Fair. It was located in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco where it enjoyed a run of six months. Items from this Fair are extremely hard to come by, and this collection will be of great interest to collectors of World's Fair images and memorabilia. Please note: there is a short descriptive bottom caption which is not shown.
