NEW departure in the history of Exhibitions will be made in 
the summer of 1886, precisely 101 years since John Adams, the 
first Minister of the United States who came on a friendly 
mission to Great Britain, presented his credentials to King George III. 

An American Exhibition is to be opened in London on the first of May, 
1886. 

The idea of thus demonstrating, in the midst of the busy mart of the Old 
World, the progress made in the f)ursuits of peace by the principal nation 
of the Western Hemisphere originated with General C. B. Norton, of Boston, 
Mass. (to whom Americans are also indebted for the suggestion of the 
Centennial Exhibition of 1,876), and with Mr. John Eobinson Whitley, 
of London. 

It has since received the widest and most influential support. The 
American Exhibition of 1886, entirely devoted to a specific and compre- 
hensive display of the wealth of the United States, will be the first of its 
kind which ha« ever been held beyond the limits of the National territory. 

The United States Government, the Governors of the most important 
States and Territories, the Consul-General in London, the great Civic and 



Commercial Corporations, and a large number of the most distinguished 
and eminent citizens, including many of the largest American manufac- 
tm-ers, merchants, and producers (a number of ■whom have already applied 
for about 1 00,000 square feet of space) having expressed approval, a com- 
plete representation will be given of the arts, inventions, manufactures, 
products, and resources of the principal nation of the New World. 

The advantages to be hoped from such an Exhibition are manifold. The 
friendly relations bet\^een the two countries will be strengthened ; American 
Inventors, Manufacturers, and Producers will have for the first time an oppor- 
tunity of presenting to Europeans the many improvements made during the 
past half-century, while visitors to the Exhibition from all parts of Europe 
and the Colonies will carry away valuable lessons on the improved modes of 
production stimulated in America by the dearness of labour. 

The Industrial Departments of the Exhibition, in all their varied 
branches, will invite and attract special attention to the wonderful progress 
made in the United States of America since the Centennial Exhibition of 
1876. Comprising much that has not yet been seen in Europe, the 
great improvements made by Americans in all branches of labour-saving 
machinery, especially for the utilisation of Wood and Metals, the practical 
helps for household purposes, the advantages secured by new motors, and 
the most recently completed appliances for using the Telegraph and the 
Telephone, will possess a deep interest for Europeans and visitors from 
the Colonies. 

Arrangements are being entered into by which some of the best of 
the American exhibits from The World's Exposition in New Orleans, 1884-5, 
and from the International Exhibition of Antwerp, 1885, will be brought 
over to, and warehoused in, London, until the opening of the American 
Exhibition in 1886. 

The mere announcement that an American Exhibition will be held in 
London in 1886 has already awakened the keen rivalry of American Inven- 
tors, and it may be stated with confidence that, as the result, a number of new 
and entirely original inventions will be exhibited by enterprising Americans. 

Such an Exhibition— the first of its kind— will doubtless attract as many 



visitors as the Fisheries Exhibition of 1883, and the International Health 
Exhibition of 1884, and in no better or more economical way can the great 
advantages of the United States be presented to the public. It must be 
borne in mind that there is in London a large transitory population, 
representing all parts of the world, who will, by means of the proposed 
Exhibition, have an opportunity of examining American manufactures, and 
of introducing them into their several countries. In like manner the 
attention of foreign capital will be attracted to the great railway and mining 
interests of the United States. 

With the co-operation of the Governors of States and of the principal 
Eailway Companies, it is proposed to arrange the Entrance Hall so that 
the European visitor shall take leave of his native soil, and shall tempo- 
rarily be in, and commence his visit to North America from, the 
Harbour of New York with the Baitholdi Statue of Liberty, and the 
striking features of the eastern entry to the United States, around him. 

On leaving " New York Harbour," the visitor's first excursion will be 
through the various States across the Continent to San Francisco — from the 
Atlantic to the Pacific seaboards. He will pass collections illustrating the 
wealth and civilisation of the several States from east to west, from north 
to south. 

The railway routes and the picturesquely diversified scenery of the 
agricultural, pastoral, forest, and mining States will be illustrated by 
paintings, plans, and products. The resources and characteristic produc- 
tions of the various parts of the vast territory extending between the 
Atlantic and Pacific Coasts will thus be exposed to view almost as fully as 
to a tourist passing through the country, and with greater facilities of 
comparison. 

The " Trip Across the American Continent " will, doubtless, be one of 
the most instructive and popular features of the Exhibition. 

Interest in the American Exhibition is still further enhanced by the 
fact that it has been decided to open a Colonial Exhibition in London in 
1886, so that there will be a friendly rivalry on the part of Australia, 
Canada, and India with the United States. This new feature in London 



life will be sure to contribute many thousands of visitors to the largfl 
number expected in 1886, and thus bring about an accession of visitors to 
the American Exhibition; for those who are attracted to London by the 
Colonial Exhibition will not fail to profit by the opportunity afforded them 
of paying a viait also to the American Exhibition, and vice versa. The 
Times (London) remarks, in its issue of September I7th, 1884, that 
" there is a certain fitness in the proposal that a great Colonial and great 
American Show should take place simultaneously."' The result of con- 
currently holding these two great Exhibitions of collections from the 
Ifnited States of America on the one hand, and the British Colonies on the 
other, will accordingly be to bring together the whole of the English- 
speaking world, and to furnish an opportunity for making acquaintance 
with every part of the earth in which a native of the British Isles would 
fin 4 himself, as it were, among his own people. 

■ It is anticipated that the United States Government will send a unique 
collection, representing the Treasury Department of Engraving and 
Printing, the drawings of the coast survey, the models and lights (gas, 
oil, and electric) of the Lighthouse Board, the varied apparatus of the 
Life-saving Services, the weights, measures, and the delicate and ingenious 
chemical and mechanical gauges of the Customs and Inland. Revenue 
department. 

From the War Department are expected torpedoes, m.odels, and 
methods of submarine mining, outfits and appurtenances of military 
engineer field service, also every variety of artillery, rifles, and small arms 
generally. 

The Department of Agriculture will be invited to show examples of the 
maize, wheat, and cotton, the flocks and herds of the great Eepublic, and of 
the methods employed for raising and improving them. The trappers' art 
ifl the wilder regions of the continent will be illustrated, and the Society 
of American Taxidermists will be. asked to contribute a large group of 
birds with brilliant plumage, of mammals, from the grizzly bear of the 
Eocky Mountains downwards, and reptiles ; while in another Department 
the visitor may learn the taste of canvas-back duck and terrapin soup. 



The Bureau of Education will have an opportunity of showing the methods 
of the puolic and mixed schools by which education in the United States 
is brought within the reach of so large a body of the population, and in 
this section it is especially proposed to present the successful efforts of 
the Department of the Interior in the instruction of the Indian and the 
negro, as conducted at Hampton (Virginia), under the superintendence 
of General Armstrong, and also at Carlisle (Pennsylvania), under that 
of Captain H. D. Pratt. The Manufacturing Department of the 
Exhibition will comprise the development in every branch of that 
inventive genius which, in the United States, has reached so high a 
point, and, so far as possible, it is proposed to present the various pro- 
cesses in working order, by the aid of electricity, steam, gas, or hydraulic 
power. 

A separate hall (the Industrial Hall) will be devoted to the handicrafts 
pursued by white,, Chinese, Indian, and negro men and girls. The labour- 
saving machinery, by which manual toil is reduced to a minimum, will be 
plentifully exhibited. The systems of working the great trunk railways 
and canals, the oil wells, and the coal and silver mines will be shown, 
together with the machinery and organisation by which American manu- 
factures are produced. Not only sightseers, but manufacturers, land- 
owners, commercial men, farmers, all who are interested in stock-raising, 
and all who think of emigration, will find much to study in the Exhibition, 
Some of its results will, therefore, certainly be to increase the investments 
of capital in American enterprises, to attract a higher class of settlers to 
the United States, and to augment the export trade of America, while 
affording to Europeans and visitors from the Colonies a unique opportunity 
of obtaining much valuable information of a most varied and useful 
character. 

Medals in gold, silver j and bronze, and diplomas of honour will be 
awarded on the recommendation of juries composed of eminent Englishmen 
in each profession, trade, and branch of industry represented, 

.,0f course the characteristic amusements of the American people will 
not be forgotten. At an American theatre, it is proposed that performances 



10 

shall be given by American actors, and by the negro singers who keep alive 
the reminiscences of plantation life and minstrelsy. The Art Department, 
the Theatre, and the Concert Eoom will be under the management of 
eminent artists and impresarios. 

A number of the best knovra American Artists in Europe and America 
have undertaken to furnish the Fine Art Galleries, and, amongst many 
other works, will be portraits of the most promiaent personages— soldiers, 
preachers, politicians, lawyers, bankers, inventors, merchants, writers, and 
actors — of the United States. 

There will be in connection with the Exhibition such sports as may be 
practicable, including roller-skating, base-ball playing, lacrosse, trotting 
matches, bicycling tournaments, billiards, and the American variations of 
every form of recreation which is popular in the old country. 

The principal phases of American life will be represented in the Exhi- 
bition, from a broker's office in Wall Street to the camp fires of Nevada. A 
Califomian wine-shop ; Florida fruit stores ; an Indian village ; Indian 
canoe-makers and mat-weavers ; ice-drink pavilions and bars ; restaurants, 
with the products of the Eastern and Pacific coasts, and of the Northern 
and the Southern States, characteristically prepared and served by white 
and coloured male and female cooks and waiters, will help to mark the 
peculiarities and variety of American social development. Arrangements 
are being made to include a Press Pavilion ; an Atlantic Cable Office ; an 
Electrical Elevated Railway ; and reproductions of the facades and interiors 
of remarkable hotels and public buildings. 

Arrangements are being made for an invitation by the Freemasons of 
England to delegates of the American Freemasons to appear at the opening 
ceremonies. Similar proposals are on foot for the holding in England of 
the moveable meetings for 1 886 of American learned Societies and other 
similar bodies. Among the members of many representative associations, 
a celebrated American regiment, with its band of skilled musicians, and an 
American Fire Engine corps, are expected to pay a visit to London during 
the Exhibition. This, it is believed, will be the first organised trip to 
Great Britain of an American military force, and it will be made if 



11 

possible, to coincide in date with the Wimbledon IMeeting, in order that 
the volunteer military services of the two countries may meet together on 
a friendly footing worthy of the feelings of mutual esteem which charac- 
terise the present relations of the two kindred nations. 

The plan of the proposed Exhibition has been received with enthusiasm 
in America, and is meeting with an amount of practical support there, as 
in Great Britain, which cannot fail to make the display national and 
representative in the fullest sense of the terms. 

As an evidence of the cordial feeling shown towards the Exhibition in 
this country, it may be added that, on joining the Council of Welcome, 
members have supplemented their expressions of adhesion by others 
of approval and encouragement, and by voluntary offers of hearty co-ope- 
ration. The opinion has been generally expressed that an occasion like 
the present should be seized for publicly recognising and strengthening 
the ties of friendship and regard at present happily existing between 
communities which have the strongest motives for an amicable under- 
standing. The Exhibition has already served to stimulate and give 
expression to the desire which prevails, both in the United Kingdom and 
the United States, for a more intimate mutual knowledge and appreciation. 
The international sympathies which have been evoked are neither feeble 
nor insignificant ; and it has been observed that to maintaining and 
enhancing them we may most confidently look for a continuance of material 
and moral progress on both sides of the Atlantic.

'"®^e 'gtmcs" (London), September llth, 1884. 

" Among the many announcements of exhibitions to be held in all parts 
of the civilised world is the novel and somewhat bold programme of an 
American Exhibition to take place in London in 1886, and though it- 
appears to savour of carrying the war into the enemy's country, there is 
much to be said in favour of such a scheme. The United States, although 
the social and industrial rapprochemevi with this country increases every 
day, are still too much unknown as a whole, notwithstanding that certain 
• States are as familiar to Englishmen as Yorkshire or "Wales. The pro- 
moters of the proposed exhibition have already received abundant promises 
of assistance and encouragement from the United States Grovernment and 
the authorities of the various States and Territories, and from well-known 
American firms. Although the leading idea will naturally be to present to 
the English eye the industrial resources and manufactures of the States, in 
all of which labour-saving machinery will be conspicuous, it is intended to 
reproduce the main features of social life in the shape of art, education, 
and amusement ; while, as far as possible, the exhibition will present a 
kind of panoramic sequence, the visitor entering at the harbour of New 
York and progressing from the Atlantic to the Pacific sea-board. The 
year 1886 will apparently be a busy one in exhibitions, and there is a 
certain fitness in the proposal that a great Colonial and great American 
Show should take place simultaneously."
