Subject

Cotton States Exposition

Description

This view of the Machinery Hall's interior shows an exhibition of steam pumps. Visible in the background is a sign for "Henry R Worthington--New York," which was the name of the owner of a company called "Worthington Pump Works." Henry R Worthington was also the inventor of the duplex direct-acting pump, one of the most significant technological advancements in steam pumps for the time. Worthington's pumps were on display as a technological innovation, but also had a practical purpose. They were responsible for providing the water supply and fire protection for the exposition.
