The Smithsonian Institution Exhibit at the 1888 Centennial Exposition of the Ohio Valley and Central States in Cincinnati, Ohio. The sign on the long, low exhibit case in the middle of the photograph says "Selection of Oriental Antiquities; Biblical Archaeology." The Smithsonian coordinated all of the U.S. Government exhibits and prepared a display on its activities and collections for the exposition. Visible in the picture on top of a case is a model of a deer pulling a sled as well as pictures of locomotives, and benches for sitting. Pictures are on the far wall and on bunting hung from the ceiling.
