“This picture of Cincinnati’s first Christmas tree, in its night attire of colored electric lights, was taken by the Times-Star photographer a few seconds after the tree has sprung into effulgence Christmas eve in response to the pressure upon an electric button. Ten thousand people gathered on Government square to participate in the impressive ceremonies.”
--Cincinnati Times-Star, December 25, 1913
