Descriptive text accompanying the illustration reads as follows: “The Temple of Music at the northwest corner of the Court of Fountains and Esplanade, is a center of interest for music lovers. The temple is very beautiful in its exterior aspect and contains an auditorium seating 2,200 people. Emmons Howard has installed a great pipe organ at a cost of $15,000, and this is the place for orchestra, vocal and organ concerts and recitals during the Exposition. It is also a meeting hall for other purposes. The building is from designs by Esenwein & Johnson, of Buffalo. The decorative groups of sculpture are by Isidore Konti.”
