  1. Stereoscopic image from the 1885-1886 North, Central and South American Exposition....successor to the 1884-85 World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition. The fair opened in November of 1885 and closed in April of 1886....a financial failure! Edward L. Wilson (Centennial Photographic Co.) obtained exclusive rights to produce stereoviews and other photographic images for the 1884-85 exposition; while local New Orleans photographer, George Francois Mugnier, produced the photographic images during 1885-86. Images from the 1885-86 exposition are extremely rare! The exposition's 33-acre Main Building is seen at the left, and the 14-acre States Exhibits Building is visible beyond the trees in the background. The asphalt walkway to the right is bordered by crushed shell, concealing drainage ditches dug to carry off rainwater during unpredictable downpours.
