[Eurenius & Quist? / Johannes Jaeger? / other?]
[Industritställningen i Stockholm 1866 / Industrial exhibition in Stockholm 1866]
 Overzized albumen photo mounted on card board. Photo 43 x 34,5 cm. Card board 55,5 x 44 cm.
A repaired tear in the lower left corner of the photo. Some dirt, foxing and creases to the card board. Some dirt to the verso. The photo with nice tonal range.
The photo shows the main hall of the exhibition with "Molins fontän", here still in plaster. It was later iron cast and placed roughly at the same spot in Kungsträdgården. The photo might have been published by the firm Eurenius & Quist who was the official photographers of the exhibition. The firm issued several very large photos of the event. It might also be by Johannes Jaeger who executed a famous photo of the opening ceremony. Often called Sweden´s first press photo, since a copy was delivered to the king within a couple of hours. Again it might be by someone else. You can see people sitting at the benches, some of them transparent since they were moving when the photo was exposed. Such a large photo required a long exposure time. Across the hall you can see a sign for the norwegian section of the exhibition. At the front is a sign with the company name "Bing & Gröndahl". A scarce photo in a very large format. The glass negative must have been quite a challenge to handle.
