Depicts evangelists Dwight Moody and Ira Sankey before a large audience inside John Wanamaker's Grand Depot at 13th & Market Streets. A large banner bearing a biblical quotation hangs on the wall behind the preachers. In 1876 John Wanamaker purchased the abandoned Pennsylvania Railroad Station for his Grand Depot.
