Above: The front cover of the October 1939 edition of Popular Mechanics magazine featuring a color illustration that depicts Clifford at work
inside one of the State Exposition Building's cycloramas. More properly called dioramas, these large scale miniature tableaux recreated in three
dimension scenes from throughout California. Many of these remarkable creations were still on display at the State Exposition Building's later
incarnation, the Museum of Science and Industry. The Most Sublime Grand Master, as well as other members of the Brotherhood recall
seeing them during visits to the museum in the 1960s and 70s. Sadly the last of these wonderful works by Clifford were lost during the
modernization of the Museum of Science and Industry in the 1980s and it final transformation into the California Science Center in the late 90s.
