Description
Main dining room of the Rowe Hotel which was located on the north-west corner of Monroe and Michigan. The large empty dining room is all set up with tablecloths and silverware. The high ceiling beams are dark wood, decorated with a repeated pattern of small circles. A larger, longitudinal beam is supported by three square pillars of rectangular block tile, with carved decoration at the tops. On each pillar are sconces, about halfway up, with three shaded lights and two unshaded candle bulbs. Additional sconces of a slightly different style appear on the walls, which are of rectangular tiles similar to those on the pillars. A miniature lamp appears on each of the small two-person tables against the walls. The tables in the center of the dining room are round, with seating for four. The chairs are wooden, with caned backs and upholstered leather seats. Service tables near the pillars contain water pitchers, trays, glasses, and other items. The floor is a checkerboard of large dark and white tiles.
