Central Library Reference Room


A view from the northwest corner of the Reference Room (later the Science and Business Room) on the second floor of Central Library. A large clock is mounted above the eastern doorway leading to the Technical Room (later the Government Documents Room), and the door on the south wall leads out into the Lobby. There are two rows of long reading tables with Windsor chairs around them. In the southeast corner of the room is the Reference Desk. In the lower right corner of the photo is an slanted table, possibly a drafting table. Transcribed from back of photo: 'Central Library Reading Room 1913'.
