History - Expo 1904 Saint-Louis - The marvellous Palace of Mexico !

Mexican pavilion at the 1904 Saint Louis World's Fair -

Louisiana Purchase Exposition

The president of Mexico, Porfirio Diaz, farsighted as he is, took great interest in the Exposition from the very inception of the enterprise, and the country set aside a handsome sum to secure a proper representation of their industries and progress at this World's Fair.

The Mexican commissionner, Senor Albino R. Nuncio, ably represented his government.

The mexican industrials nobly responded to the encouragement thus held out to them, they participated
largely, and a highly creditable and partly even brilliant exhibibition was the result.

The pavilion of the Mexican Goverment occupied a place between the British Building and the French Trianon, and was a hospitable spot, not only for mexicans, but for the people of many nations.
