Not illustrated. 1906 Excerpt: ... The array of designs and colorings was both brilliant and beautiful, ranging from the strong and contrasting red, golds, and blacks to the soft and delicate shades of cream and lavender, supplying a hammock to suit almost any taste or surrounding. This portion of the exhibit well merited the Grand Prize and Gold Medal which were awarded, being the only similar award made on such a line. The Utopia hammock outrit shown herewith was particularly noticeable as a centre of attraction. The awards received on the various articles exhibited were one Grand Prize, one Gold Medal, three silver medals, and one bronze medal. In addition to these medals there have been awarded to I. E. Palmer fourteen other medals by the principal National and International exhibits since 1865, making a total award of twenty medals. In addition to the exhibit of hammocks and accessories was also shown a most complete and extensive line of mosquito lied canopies and fixtures for which the Arawana Mills have been justly celebrated for over forty years. There was also shown a complete line of crinoline dress linings, horse fly nettings, and minnow or bait rish nettings. The factory and main offices are located in Middletown, Conn., with branch offices at 55 Worth St., New York City; 210 Monroe St., Chicago; 221 Front St., San Francisco; 200 McGill St., Montreal, Can.; 219 Chestnut St., Philadelphia; 38 Shoe Lane, Fleet St., London, and 1 rue St. Martin, Paris.
