The Lobby: Then and Now

The first photograph below shows what the lobby of The Baker Hotel looked like when the hotel was first completed in 1929.  It was likely taken at night, since the bank of windows on the upper right were designed to let in quite a bit of natural light during the daytime.

The second photograph was taken in May 2013 through a crack in the window.  (Note: If you decide to visit the building, you can get some photos like these from the outside. Please respect the no trespassing signs – for your own safety as well as for the preservation of the building!)
