This is the east-side interior of the Hobart library, now the Hobart Historical Society museum.

I like the fresh flowers on the tables in the 1922 photo — lilacs on the table nearest the fireplace, I believe. The library had plenty of shelf space in those days.

Perhaps the photo doesn't date precisely to 1922, but the message on the verso does:

2016-3-30. Library interior 002

The signature may be "Harold Ray" or "Harold & Ray"; either way I can't identify the writer.
