Periodical Room, Central Library


A view of the Periodical Room on the first floor, seen from the southeast corner. There are about ten long reading tables, each with ten Windsor chairs, and a smaller circular reading table in the lower right foreground. At the far end of the room are double doors which lead to the Binding and Shipping Room. Periodical shelving line the walls and on the right side of the photo three white marble steps lead up to the first floor lobby. The room in this photo became the Popular Library in the 1950s. Transcribed from back of photo: 'Portland Periodical. Central - Pop. Library'.
