Long Beach 1928: Palace of Textiles & Modes.....

Located at the north-east corner of the Pacific Southwest Exposition's main court, the Palace of Textiles & Modes contained displays relating to the textile and garment industries, in addition to exhibits of general interest to women. The aisles of the building were lined with numerous displays of carpets, rugs, draperies, pillows, blankets, linens, table coverings, fine lace, hats, handbags, shoes, hosiery, under-garments, neckties, suits, gowns, shirts, and many other types of clothing related items. Various manufacturers and distributors of colognes, perfumes, powders, and cosmetics were also represented; and a general women's exhibit showed the many contributions made by modern woman to the arts, as well as their increasing involvement in the fields of science and industry.
