    Palace of Transportation. Displayed historic and current transportation devices, including mules, dog teams, oxen, horse carriages, trolleys, motorboats, a full-rigged yacht, and many trains (historic, current, and new) on over 4 miles of track. The display of automobiles showed the remarkable possibilities of this new means of travel.
