Inscription.

Located in approximately the same location where the original storefront was situated, the Palace of Fashion Mural showcases a vibrant, early 1900s women's apparel and hat store. The store's merchandise was widely sought out and people traveled from miles away to purchase new goods. The mural itself is a piece of work. Using the French technique of trompe-l'oeil (trick the eye), this mural entertains the illusion of the once existent upper level staircase and balcony.
