View of the Art Gallery & Lake in Central Park, 1883

The Southern Exposition, originally scheduled to last about two months, was such a success (in those first couple of months, there were well over 700,000 paid admissions) that the expo was extended.  It closed four years later in 1887.  This view shows the Art Gallery built in Central Park, looking northeast from the hill where the pergola now stands.  The corner of the lake can be seen on the upper left of the drawing.  The whole are is presentlythe site of the tennis courts.
