Image description: Interior setup for Moody and Sankey's revival meeting house at 1300 Market Street, seating capacity 10,208 and full capacity 12,000. Photograph shows large auditorium with exposed scaffolding and rows of chairs facing a stage and banner backdrop that reads, "I bring you good tidings of great joy which [text obscured] all be to all people." This space had formerly been a freight station for the Pennsylvania railroad and was bought by John Wanamaker in 1876 and turned into Wanamaker's department store's Grand Depot after being razed.
