Immediate Source of Acquisition
Gift of Frank H. McDonald, May 1979.
An album of 22 photographs of New York City street scenes and landmarks during the 1889 centennial celebration of the inauguration of President George Washington. Images include City Hall, Old Federal Hall, and Hanover Bank festooned with American flags and bunting; a naval parade on the East River; cannons in Battery Park; Central Park; and William Street. Also seen is the temporary, wooden Washington Arch in Washington Square, erected in 1889 with private funds to commemorate Washington's inauguration centennial. It was replaced with a permanent marble structure designed by Stanford White in 1892. The album has the bookplate of J. Foster Flagg, and handwritten captions. The photographs are not credited.
Processed by Huntington Library staff, circa late-20th century. In 2020, Suzanne Oatey created a finding aid derived from a collection file.
