Mayan ruin of Uxmal « previous 5 of 7 next »

This photo shows a replica of Mayan temple ruins in what is now Uxmal, Mexico. At the inception of the exposition, Edward H. Thompson, United States Consul to Yucatan, made paper mache molds of many of the tablets and ruins of the region. Cast into staff in Jackson Park and garnished with tropical plants, these reproductions offered the people of America their first opportunity to study the artifacts. .

The Dream City. St. Louis, MO.: N. D. Publishing Co, 1893. Further reproduction or distribution is prohibited without permission.
