I happened upon this conference room while traveling for my job. This room is at Dartmouth College in Hanover New Hampshire. The walls and ceiling of the room are covered with these wall panels, and the room is roughly 30' x 20' with 10 foot high walls. You can see a lot of fading and damage on the panels but most of them are in very good condition considering they were made around 1910. Just thinking about the amount of time it took to tool and stain these panels is staggering. Unfortunately the only camera I had was my cell phone so the pictures don't do it justice.
