"The Aviation Building. This exhibit has been designed to give visitors the impression of their arrival at a large and busy airport. In the central portion will be shown the latest type planes and even the plane of tomorrow. The dome-like rear portion holds an invisibly suspended transport plane with propellers moving as if in flight, with a cloud illusion projected against the curved background. Architects: William Lescaze and J. Gordon Carr."--verso.
