Description:
This black and white photograph, taken on the northwest corner of the Park House Hotel, shows approximately thirty people standing on the street and porch of the hotel. In the background, the temple is the dominant feature. Its sloped dome roof extends to thirty metres high and a cupola crowns it, letting in light through its approximately sixteen four-paned windows.
Notes:
This massive temple was the built in 1888. It was modeled after the Mormon Tabernacle. According to the programs of the Chautauqua, it was able to seat seven thousand people. It was thirty-seven metres in diameter and thirty metres high. While a majestic building in stature, it was less so in structure. It leaked and the acoustics were very poor. It fell into disuse and was demolished in 1922.
