This display of metal plates and bowls is at the Midwest Hotel Show. The image was taken on April 15, 1955, and was ordered by a Mr. Schulz for the Tempinware Corporation, which was located at 93 North Lotus Avenue (Tempinware was a metal goods manufacturer). The location appears to be inside the Continental Coffee shop, but this establishment is not listed in the 1955 Pasadena City Directory (nor is "Midwest Hotel"). The Directory lists Herman R. Schulz as president of Imperial Ice Cream Company, Redi Products Corporation, and Tempinware Corporation (he lived at 1845 North Foothill Boulevard in Altadena with his wife Mildred). The directory also lists Carl G. Schulz as the secretary-treasurer of the aforementioned companies. Carl resided at 181 East Calaveras in Altadena with his wife Irene. The photographer used a block out effect on the negative by painting over the film side with an opaque material around the edge to create a white border.
