Description
A view of the Grand Court at the California Midwinter International Exposition in San Francisco. In the center of the Grand Court is the "Electric Tower", a structure that looks similar to the Eiffel Tower and has an electric elevator that carried passengers to three different viewing platforms. There is a sign for "Belvista Cafe" along the side of the lowest observation platform, which refers to the cafe at the foot of the tower. The wide building with three domes in the background is the Manufactures and Liberal Arts Building.
Date supplied by cataloger, based on the year of the Exposition. One of forty-eight glass plate negatives originally housed together with a note by Latta reading "Frank Robinson Merced Area Misc. Unidentified."
