I was wondering if any of these, or similar sized, signs has ever turned up.

September 1964

I believe this was outside the Better Living Center.

Chrysler must have paid extra to get TWO signs up there. :)

What's the sign in the upper left, Bill? Alexander something.

As you can see the original slide is a bit blurry. Something about carpets perhaps?

Bill - I think you're right. I'm reading the sign as Alexander Smith and a quick google search produces Alexander Smith Carpets.

I wonder if Alexander Smith Carpets had an exhibit in one of the multi-purpose pavilions such as the Better Living Center?

Looks like we figured out the sign 10 years ago... :)

Does anybody have the 1964 Official Guide book, and can look up what Pavilion #1 was? In the back, Smith Carpets is listed as an exhibitor in Pavilion #1.

I have the 1964/1965 guide book and pavillion no 1 is listed as The House of Good Taste.

Aha! :)

Now go back to the sign, and I think we can make out 'At the House of Good Taste'- the first blue line on the right under Alexander Smith.

Why couldn't we read it before? hahahaha
