The Varied Industries and Food Products Buiilding is shown from the other side of La Laguna de las Flores at the California-Panama Exposition of 1915 held in San Diego's Balboa Park to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal. Reflected in the Lagoon (also known as Lily Pond, Laguna de Espejo, or Reflecting Pool), the building was renamed the Foreign and Domestic Building (1916), then the Palace of Food and Beverages (1935). After the building was closed in 1968, it was reconstructed by architect Richard George Wheeler (1917-1990) and reopened in 1971 as the Casa del Prado, without the apse shown here. One side of the Botanical Building can be glimpsed on the far left.
