Typical Dining Room with Wood Finishing, 1918

This photograph depicts a dining room from the early 1900s with extensive woodwork, hardwood floors, area rugs, and period furniture. It appeared in the Norwester magazine, which often printed articles that were of general interest to the residents of Upper Arlington. The Lowe Brothers, a paint company from Dayton, Ohio, submitted three articles to the magazine between 1918 and 1919 about home decorating. This photo accompanied one of their articles, "Building Woods," in the December 1918 Norwester, which discussed the different kinds of wood used for interior finishing and how each should be painted or stained.
