Photo Hunt: Old-Fashioned



I took this photo at the main branch of the New York Public Library while I was on my business trip. This old library is full of old-fashioned things. An unabridged dictionary on a wooden stand with a reading lamp is one of them. (Pay no attention to the "new-fashioned" light bulbs in the reading lamp. :) )

Nice work, Rebecca,

Perfect lighting, nice angle, great view of the subject. Then again, I'm biased because I've always been an avid reader.

Thanks for the visit and the lovely comment on my pictures of the Victoria Memorial.

Cheers

David

Nice of the library to have a dictionary for the public to use. Maybe I should suggest that to my local library as well :)

Look like our local library -although ours may be just limited in floor space compare to NY's.

That's a very good photo, and great for the theme. How lovely to have the dictionary out like that.

That was a good idea. We have old books rubbing shoulders with DVDs.
Thanks for the comment.
