A second poster marking the inauguration of the Peace Palace in August 1913. In several advertisements that year, travellers from abroad were invited to come to The Netherlands:

'Come to Holland in 1913! Holland will celebrate the 100th anniversary of her Independence with Festivities of every description - Pageants, 30 Expositions of Industry, Art, Shipping, Agriculture. This year will mark the Inauguration of the Peace Palace at The Hague. The formal dedication of Carnegie's Royal Gift will be attended by the ceremonies its world-wide importance demands.
