Title supplied by cataloger. This show took place at the Pan Pacific Auditorium.; Pan Pacific Auditorium was located at 7600 Beverly Boulevard in the Fairfax district. Its green and white western-facing 228 foot long facade featured four stylized towers and flagpoles meant to represent upswept aircraft fins above the entrance. Designed by architects Wurdemann & Becket, it was one of America's finest examples of Streamline Moderne architecture. From 1935 to 1972, when it was closed after the Los Angeles Convention Center opened, it held numerous sporting events, rallies, circuses, and car shows. After years of neglect and failed attempts at restoration, the structure was destroyed by fire in 1989. Pan Pacific Park is now located at this site. Photograph caption dated November 5, 1935 reads, "The thrill of seeing new cars with their sleek, streamlined lines and their outstanding features of comfort is drawing thousands of persons to the auto show. Photo shows a varied group looking over one of the newest designs in motordom at the show."
