Summary

View of the Southeast Court from the balcony, looking down into the Wood Technology Exhibit in the United States National Museum, now the Arts and Industries Building. Empty cases around the balcony suggest that preparations are underway to install the Public Health exhibit, which first appeared on floor plans in 1925. Floor plans show that exhibit remained in the Southeast Court from 1918 to 1946.
