Two Views of the Garden

Here are a couple of very nice architectural renderings of the Garden on Locust, from a full-page newspaper ad that ran during the theatre's opening. As you'll see, Norman T. Vorse (architect of many an old Des Moines building) was behind this one.

When A.H. Blank was feted downtown for his years in the exhibition business, he was presented with a cake made to look just like his beloved Garden! (I'll see if I can get the photo of it for posting...)
