Original 1876 Centennial Exposition Showcase Albumen Photo Bigelow Kennard & Co.


  • Amazing Large Albumen Print Photograph from the 1876 International Exposition
  • 9″ x 7″ Image of the Middletown Plate Co.’s Illustrious Showcase, mounted on a 10″x 8″ gilt beveled edge card, which itself is mounted on a large 12″ x 10″  back card.
  • The showcase proudly displays their finest Sterling Silver and Silver-plated wares, along with Jewelry.
  • Around them you can see booths of fellow Bostonian companies, leading me to believe this is in the Massachusetts Building at the Expo.
  • Jacques’ Cologne, Hoyes Bros., George W. Carnes & Co., Centennial Clothing House, and Jacobs & Deane Booth signs are visible.
  • Although unmarked on the currently visible areas, photograph was likely taken by The Centennial Photographic Co.  as they had exclusive rights to photo the exposition.
  • Great original Photo for any World’s Fair/Exposition Collection!




Moderate spotting and discoloration from age on the albumen itself. The original card shows some moderate edge wear and discoloration on the front, heavier on the rear. Subject remains clear and visible.
