The photograph’s caption is accompanied with the following descriptive text:

     A colossal group erected over the entrance to the Government Building at the Buffalo Pan-American Exposition, at Buffalo, N. Y., in the year 1900 [sic].
     This group represents a female figure of the law supporting a tablet upon which is inscribed, “The Law Rules.” She is treading upon the dragon of anarchy and revolt, and supported on either side by colossal male figures; one representing physical power and the other intellectual power to carry out the law’s behests. President McKinley stood under this group and made his speech the day before he was assassinated.
Title herein taken from caption.
