They deserted the streets in the exhibit sector of the Exposition at Cleveland to flock to the lake front in the amusement area to witness one of the greatest displays of fire works ever seen. The fire works were set off on floats in the lake and fascinated the huge crowd for an hour. This photo shows the Hall of Progress in the center of the spacious grounds with a burst of sky rockets blooming like flowers against the curtain of night."--verso. | "Copyrighted by Sapirstein Greeting Card Company, Cleveland, Ohio, official exposition post card distributors."--verso. | 2 postcards, (1 traveled, 1 untraveled), with a color illustration of the deserted exhibition streets as fireworks light up the sky above the Progress Building and to the left of the Firestone Building.
