Work Description: 
This was probably taken at the same time as 15-5 and 15-7. The books on the shelves and the items on the circulation desk all look identical. That would date this as 1904 shortly after the library opened. Note the oak circulation desk. Note the heel marks on the risers of the steel stairs behind the globe lamp in the center. Under the second floor balcony at left is a bare electric bulb while at right a cord is plugged into the outlet which runs to the lamp on the card catalog. On the back of the card catalog is a card that says "SAVOGRAN" or "SAYOGRAN". On the study tables at left and right note the bare electric bulbs of most of the study lights. 15-5 shows this but also shows lights on tables toward the front that have conical shades. One such shade is seen at the far right. It is possible that all the shades had not yet arrived when these pictures were taken which would put this as early 1904. Two students are visible - one at far left and one blurred at the right.
