Shows the cavernous interior of the former Pennsylvania Railroad Station set up for a meeting with evangelist Dwight L. Moody. A large banner with a message of greeting is draped on the wall behind the stage. Although John Wanamaker had purchased the abandoned station in 1876 to expand his retail clothing business, he allowed the evangelist to use its facilities, before the Grand Depot opened for business the same year.
