1926 Sesqui-centennial International Exposition held in
Philadelphia featured many exciting and unusual attractions.
One of the most fascinating was the elaborate gateway built at the
entrance of the Exposition - a gigantic, 80 foot replica of the
Liberty Bell that people, cars and trucks passed under to enter the fair!
The sheet-metal Bell was covered with almost 26,000 15-watt light bulbs
so that it could be seen at night. Even the clapper was covered in lights.
The Giant Liberty Bell is depicted in this postcard and beautiful viewbook
from the Sesqui-centennial Expo.
