Long Beach 1928: Czechoslovakia Building.....

The Czechoslovakia Building was situated west of the Japanese Building, on the south side of the Pacific Southwest Exposition's Avenue of Nations. The building was designed in a simple Czechoslovakian country style, with step-walled gables and a wood-shingled roof. Within the building were displayed a variety of handcrafted items, consisting of rugs, carpets, fabrics, felt hats, gloves, shoes, toys, pencils, cigarette holders, matches, fine linen and embroidery, ceramics, Bohemian glass, vases, bowls, candlesticks, and many other articles produced exclusively by the hand of man.
