Located on Presidential Row South, the Exhibit contained displays of historical relics reminiscent of the glorious past civilizations on Mexico.

Collections of exquisite carvings decorated ornaments, produced by native artisans, showed the type of handicraft of which Mexico has long been famous.

Exhibits emphasizing present day achievements included photography of improved irrigation lands and up-to-date schools. Recent social and industrial references are depicted by means of drawings and charts.

Displays of industrial products, Mexican glassware, pottery, silver and fabrics were also presented. The aim of the entire Exhibit was to give Fair visitors a cleaver and more sympathetic understanding of the Mexican people.
