This hand-colored image shows the monumental lobby of the Old Faithful Inn. The fireplace is 85 feet tall and weighs 500 tons. The object at the top is a clock, and the lobby is surrounded by multiple levels of galleries.
The description states:
Old Faithful Inn Lobby was photographed by artificial light. Notice the huge clock and fireplace, and the crowd of sightseers.
–Also visible in the lower right are band members at their instruments. Presumably music was provided both for background and for evening dancing. This card likely dates from the 1940s.
