President Harrison’s Triumphal Tour



by Louis Dalrymple (1889)

president harrison's triumphal tour (1889)


Lazy Curator™ sez: Here we have an image of Benjamin Harrison riding a parade float as unemployed laborers suffer. Also on the parade float we see William Wade Dudley, Renfield Proctor, “Corporal” James Tanner, “Headsman” Clarkson, P. Wanamaker, Matthew Quay and James Blaine. The carriage is pulled by “Law Partner” Miller and Russell Harrison (the president’s son), the latter bearing a note reading, “I Have Dined With the Queen.”

The things I go through just to give you these little tidbits. It took forever to find a decent, non-wonky scan of this. I hope you consider the trouble worth the effort!

EDIT: “De-lazied” it a bit with a bit of updated info, on 7/14/17
