Transportation Offices The Company has stipulated with the exposition people to re serve between thirteen and four teen thousand feet of space in one wing of the structure for such space as may be desired by other transportation companies, rail or or steamer, and offices of this kind will be confined to this build ing. The convenience to exposi tion visitors of concentrating the transportation offices in this man ner is obvious. In addition the building, which was designed by the Southern Maintenance of W a y Department, will have rest rooms for men and women, a smoking room for) men, and an information bureau for the convenience of all visitors, and a ticket office. The exterior wiH be prettily set off by a parking arrangement for the exploitation of California’s trees and flowers. The entire exhibit is intended to be a scheme worthy of the expo- sition and the Southern Pacific Company.
