The North Texas Room features a fresco of "Old Man Texas."  This popular early twentieth century cartoon character is surrounded by symbols of North Texas.  In the center background, a farm stands against a huge bale of cotton.  To the left, industry and manufacturing are shown; to the right, wealth and culture of the region.  "Old Man Texas" embraces the two major cities of North Texas:  Dallas and Fort Worth.
