The decorations and furnishings are in Louis XVI period, correct in every detail and delicate in color and design. This light treatment is made perfectly feasible by the system of ventilation employed. Cooled, filtered air is forced into the rooms in summer and warm air in winter, so that all windows are permanently closed against the dust and smoke from outside. The Restaurant is under the management of Fred Harvey" (quoted from back of postcard).
