Item: 00650
Title: Constitutional Convention reunion at the State Capitol, Bismarck (N.D.)
Date: circa 1914
Creator: Holmboe Studio (Bismarck, N.D.)
Summary: Members of the 1889 Constitutional Convention gather in front of the old North Dakota Capitol Building in Bismarck for a group photo, likely on the 25th anniversary of the Convention. The delegates all wear ribbons on their lapels. Governor L.B. Hanna stands among the delegates in the back row. Soldiers in uniform, likely North Dakota National Guardsmen, are visible at the extreme right.||The Old Capitol which served as the territory and the state was built mostly of bricks from the Sims brickyard. Though the bricks were quite sound and made a safe structure, the lime content caused some weathering. The bricks in this archway show signs of deterioration due to weathering.
