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
