FIRESTONE TEXTILES EXHIBIT—In cooperation with the
Gastonia Chamber of Commerce and the merchants of this city,
the industries of Gastonia were invited to place displays of their
products and other items of interest in designated store windows for
one week during June. Firestone Textiles had a window in Maxwell
Brothers Morris furniture store, as partially shown above. The
exhibit was designed to feature the Firestone Supreme Tire and the
fabrics from which it—and other Firestone tires—is built. Fabrics
exhibited included nylon tire fabric, rayon tire fabric, and cotton
enameline duck. Yarns from the Sales Yarn Department on display
included samples of knitting, warp, and plied yarns on dytex tube,
cone, and Franklin spring put-ups.
