Los Angeles Auto Show beginning
The Los Angeles Auto Show began in 1907 with ninety-nine vehicles on display at Morley’s Skating Rink. In 1910, the event held under a canvas big top at Fiesta Park. As the auto industry grew, the auto show changed venues four times throughout the 1920s to accommodate the growing needs of vendors. In 1926, it took place at the corner of Hill and Washington where it stayed for the next four years. During the 1929 show, an electrical circuit in one of the airplane exhibits caught fire causing the entire show to go up in flames ending in more than $1 Million in damage. With the help of the community, the show re-opened one day later at the Shrine Auditorium.
Held January 21 – 27 at Morley’s Skating Rink on Grand Avenue. The show opened to more than three thousand people, excited and dressed for a party. Crowding through the doors in the opening hours. In 2006, the show moved its dates from early January to late November/early December. Thus resulting in two shows during the year 2006, the second marking the 100 year anniversary show.
