Brilliantly illuminated buildings of the 1901 Pan American Exposition - -this illumination every evening was one of the great attractions of the Fair. First a shot during daylight, panning from the Ethnology Building to the Electric Tower. Then cut to a shot from same camera position in the evening as the lights come up on the Electric Tower. As the lights reach their full brightness, with a searchlight at the top of the Electric Tower moving back and forth over the grounds, the camera again pans slowly left to the brilliantly lit Temple of Music.
