The facade of the Texas Building in the Court of States is a stirring reproduction of the historic Alamo. In the attract, air conditioned auditorium which occupies one wing of the build was show a feature-length film, produced in"March of Time" style and dramatizing the contemporary life of Texas in all its important phases. Another wing of the building comfortably furnished, serves as a meeting place and lounge for persons awaiting the next showing of the film.
In the central portion of the building is a large-scale relief map of Texas showing, in realistic miniature figures, the founding of the Spanish missions, the battles of the Alamo and the San Jacinto, the establishment of the capital at Austin, and other features of life in Texas more than a century ago. The walls in this hall hold a frieze of greatly enlarged photographs depicting scenes of Texas life in the frontier days - an early cattle drive, the landing of immigrants at Galveston, Fort Worth and a military outpost , and may others.
