I recently ran across these photos–they were, as usual, someplace I didn’t expect them to be. They’re even labeled and dated: March 7, 1924. There are very few surviving early images of the Commons so I was pretty happy about it all. (Just so you know, I am not responsible for the fairly dramatic slant; that is the photographer’s doing.)
I don’t seem to have any other pictures of the commons with me for comparison, so I’m struggling a little with these. The columns in the top picture are really interesting, as is the shiny floor.
