INTERIOR OF “MORMON” TABERNACLE,

TEMPLE SQUARE, SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH

The world-famous Tabernacle on historic Temple Square with a seating capacity of 8,000 and housing one of the finest pipe organs in the world, was completed by the “Mormon” pioneers in 1867. Noted for its unique architecture and its exceptional acoustical qualities, it is used as a house of worship and for the presentation of cultural concerts an nationwide radio broadcasts.

–This appears to be a representation of a practice session or a performance, while the previous two images were posed for photographic purposes.

This image likely dates from the 1950s.
