President Harrison's Inauguration

Photo Details

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.
