Long Beach 1928: Belgian Building.....

The Belgian Building was located on the north side of the Avenue of Nations, across from the Czechoslovakia Building, and was one of the more popular foreign buildings at the Pacific Southwest Exposition. Over one-hundred firms were represented within the building, which was designed in a traditional rural-style of Belgium. Among the numerous exhibits were choice examples of Belgian linens and lace, glassware, soaps, dried-fruits, cereals, preserved meats and bacon, and canned-fish.
