Centennial Exposition

Centennial exposition described and illustrated, being a concise and graphic description of this grand enterprise commemorative of the first centennary of American independence by JS Ingram 1876 is online as part of the University of Georgia Library digital collection - this is a djvu website which is a program similar to the adobe pdf reader but I believe the book will render in javascript (the program is worth downloading in my view - but I already had it).

There are about 75 images - buildings and other outdoor exhibits and a number of other 'industrial' machinery, plant boutiques, indoor displays but the above images are a good cross section. Click on the images for a slightly larger version. [It took me a while to find out that this event took place in Philadelphia - you would think they'd put that somewhere obvious] ps. sorry about the layout.
