    Benjamin Harrison: 1889 Inauguration Mounted Albumen. 20" x 15" albumen affixed to a 23.5" x 19.5" titled mount, inscribed "Salem Republican Flambeau Club/ Organized 1884./ Inauguration of President Harrison,/ Washington, D.C., March 4th, 1889." Published by George Prince of Washington. The club members all wear top hats, ribbons and badges. The band members stand to the rear. There are children and even an African American gentleman wearing a kepi and multiple campaign badges. A gentleman on the far right, who likely overslept, has had his picture "photo-shopped" in (cut & paste). He was going to be in this picture, one way or another! Despite the name of the club, we don't see any flambeau torches. The mount has tears, soiling and damp stains, but is in decent condition. The photo itself is in very good condition.
    From the collection of Ed Sullivan.
