Our next building, the Manufactures and Liberal Arts Building, is 4 acres of tawny brown, blue and gold colors. Its 175,000 square feet is larger than our 21st century Target Stores (126,000), Tops International on Maple Rd in Amherst (114,000), upstairs at the Convention Center (64,400), or the Agric-Center at the Erie County Fairgrounds which is 50,000 square feet. Think of 4 acres of exhibit space. And an overflow building across the canal. It is an inclusive undertaking with divisions for food, manufactures, education, social agencies, public sanitation, and almost anything else. There are even big models of the proposed canal across the Central American isthmus, one route showing a Panama Canal and the other a Nicaragua Canal.
