The buckskin bound photograph album contains 27 photographic prints documenting the California Midwinter International Exposition
of 1894 in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, California as well as other significant locations in California.
The California Midwinter International Exposition was held in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco from January 1 to July 9, 1894.
The inspiration for the Fair was the World's Columbia Exposition at Chicago the previous year. The Midwinter Fair, as it became
known to be, sought to promote California's mild, salubrious year-round climate, as well as to portray its beauty and wealth
of diverse resources. In addition to featuring exhibits from counties throughout the state, the Exposition invited other states
and nations to exhibit wares and customs characteristic of their regions.
