(1) FINE CHEMICALS AND SCIENTIFIC EXHIBITS. THE Chemical Section in the great Palace of Industry at Wembley occupies nearly 30,000 square feet and is unquestionably one of the best organised, most artistically displayed, and interesting sections in the whole of the Exhibition. Very wisely the general principle has been adopted of not letting space to individual firms, each of which would, in the ordinary way, have been allowed to do what they pleased in the shape of decoration, type of stand, and method of displaying their exhibit, irrespective of the effect upon their immediate neighbours and the sections as a whole. Instead of this, blocks of space have been allocated to representative associations of the different industries, which have thus been able to deal with the exhibits of all the individual firms constituting their membership in a comprehensive and dignified manner so as to give the best effect, both collectively and individually.
