The collection comprises 16 interior and exterior views of the Vienna International Exposition of 1873 taken by György Klösz (8), Oscar Kramer (4), and Josef Löwy (2). The photographers for two of the images have not been identified. Included are a view of the Industry Palace from the west and a view of its south gate; views of the Monaco, Kaiser, Swedish Hunt, and Russian Kaiser pavilions; and a view of the east gate of the Art Hall. Three photographs show sculptures by Italian artists.

Fourteen mounts bear a letterpress crest above the image with text: Viribus Unitis. The photographs are numbered and captioned in the negative in German. All but two mounts are printed with the name of the exposition in German, French, and English below the image, along with the credit: Photographie und Verlag der concessionirten Wiener Photographen-Association.
