The Exposition was launched to commemorate the landing of the Spanish padres and the founding of California. The Exposition buildings, designed by architect Hugh R. Davies, were modeled on North Africa's walled cities.
Governor Young of California, center right, is shaking hands as he is photographed attending the 1928 Pacific Southwest Exposition in Long Beach. He is surrounded by crowds that extend past the entrance. Directly behind him are a group of Native Americans in feathered headdresses. Photographers have their cameras set up on tripods as they capture the occasion.
