Each year Syria Shrine Temple produced a glass to commemorate the Imperial Council Session that they were to attend.  These glasses were sold and traded much like todays baseball cards and pins and were the most sought after collectibles at these conventions.  Syria Temple commissioned Westmoreland Glass Co. and United States Glass Company to produce a different glass each year with a "theme" suited to the city that they were visiting.  This glass was designed for the Imperial Session in Rochester, New York.  The Syria Shriners are riding their camels from Pittsburgh to Rochester and getting their pictures taken by a man behind a camera (Rochester is the Home of Kodak Camera).  This glass stands 4 3/4 inches tall.
