Plaque Text:

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'œil (trick the eye), this mural entertains the illusion of the once existent upper level staircase and balcony. Onlookers enjoy trying to pin point what is real and what is art. Try your eye!
