Interior, main lobby corridor with an acrylic-panel dropped ceiling before restoration
Date of View:
In the 1960s, an acrylic-panel dropped ceiling was installed, covering an ornate ceiling mural and introducing fluorescent lighting to the lobby. Glasswork, such as intricate cast glass fixture lenses that lined elevator banks and side corridors, were replaced over time with acrylic inlays. These were removed in 2010 restoration and the mural restored.
