Compelling photograph of inside of 1890's Brown University Dorm Room

I love this original c.1890's photograph of a Brown University dorm room for young men. The image shows several young men viewing what appears to be a television program. Given that the year is about 1897 that would be quite impossible. But what are they looking at with such intensity? The tonality and lighting on this image is a work of art in it's own right. What remains to be seen is the mystery of the object that is removed from our eye. These students appear to be right out of GQ Magazine dressed to perfection. And their pinup girls on the walls are opera stars,classic fairy tails and Maxwell Parrish allegorical romantic scenes.

One has to believe the dorm room of this generation has changed. And certainly not for the better.

Photograph measures 4" 1/2 x 5 inches.
