President Benjamin Harrison's inauguration on March 4, 1889.

He is being administered the oath of office by Chief Justice Melville W. Fuller and it looks to be raining - there is a sea of umbrellas on the viewing stand. The people in the forefront seem to be hardier - there are only a few umbrellas.

This photo was taken on the east portico of the U.S. Capitol.
