1876 Centennial Exhibition Color Lithographic Views.


We are offering a wonderful selection of lithographic color prints depicting buildings at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876. The cards were probably printed in Germany. The Exposition celebrated 100 years since the Declaration of Independence was signed. All of the states that were in the United States in 1876 plus territories, foreign countries and industrial and agricultural organizations erected buildings to publicize their accomplishments and uniqueness. The states touted their attractions as well as their contributions to the progress of the nation. The buildings were a fascinating collection of regional architectural styles and made heavy use of local materials. The cards measure 6.25" w. x 4.25" high. They are in very nice condition although some are lightly soiled and the edges and corners are slightly rubbed. These prints are $20.00 each. Click on link to see image.
