Description

An exterior facade view of the Palace of Industry for The Exposition Universelle, held in Paris in 1855. A three story building, the Palace of Industry is made out of stone. The second and third levels contain an arcade of windows. A large, almost triumphal, arch surrounds the entrance. A female figure with outstretched arms surmounts the center of the arch.
