    Description

    Benjamin Harrison: Large Inauguration Photograph. Wonderful 13" x 10" albumen on a 15" x 13" titled mount reading "Inauguration of President Harrison. Washington, D.C., March 4th 1889." Published by W. Phillippi & Brother of Philadelphia. Judging by the two banners displayed, these guys were all members of the "15th Ward Union Republican Club of Philadelphia". There are three children "along for the ride" and marching club band members wearing uniforms and helmets with Keystone hat badges. The core group all wear overcoats, top hats, large ribbons and hold canes. Loss to upper right corner of mount, but generally in excellent condition.
    From the collection of Ed Sullivan.
