Black & White Photograph of the Michigan Stove Company's "World's Largest Stove" which stood outside Detroit's Belle Isle for many years, endured several moves before finally ending up at the Michigan State Fairgrounds. [Jungwirth].

Detroit nd (1950s?) 3.5 x 3.5, printed on Kodak Velox paper, no photog listed. Light creasing else good. The photo shows the side of the stove with a sign at the bottom which gives details on the stove, i.e., built in 1893, carved out of oak, weight of 30 tons. The Michigan Stove Company commissioned wood carver Joseph Jungwirth to create a replica of their Garland stove for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition that was held in Chicago in 1893. Joseph (Joachim) Jungwirth, 1860-1940, was a very talented wood carver; his works can be seen in many prominent buildings such as Christ Church, Grosse Pointe, Michigan, and the Hiram Walker estate in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
