Angle. Back: Photograph by John Luke. Inside back cover: Photograph of Temple Square, about 1870, by C. R. Savage. The Tabernacle with its domed roof overlooks the foundation of the Salt Lake Temple. Still under construction in this photograph, the Tabernacle was one of the largest buildings of its kind in the world—150 feet (46 m) wide, 250 feet (76 m) long, and 80 feet (24 m) high. On the left stands the old adobe tabernacle, which had been in use since its dedication on May 21, 1851.
