Title: Bergmann's Art Exhibition and Automatic City Broadside, no date

Description:

The broadside promotes the exhibition at 13 South Broadway, between Market and Walnut Streets, St. Louis, Missouri. Broadside states in part, "Bergmann's greatest of all works of art the $30,000 Automatic City! A triumph of genius! All automatic works of ancient or modern times eclipsed! The life of a poor German cabinet maker devoted to science! 17 years constant labor and study spent to complete this the most elaborate mechanical work in the world! The city is actually alive with throngs of busy automatic workmen, all doing their work as natural as life." The Automatic City was created by Joseph Bergmann. R. Berger, manager.
