"At the end of the elevator lobby is a drinking fountain with geese settling into a lake at evening; a lone telephone line supplies the one contact with civilization."

Notes: True also designed the drinking fountain and surrounding mosaic, as well as the employee cafeteria and the 15th floor auditorium.

(Please note that the italicized text accompanying the murals is adapted from a 1929 pamphlet put out by the telephone company to promote the murals and the building. To continue a Guided Tour and move on to the Working in the Palace/Building Tour section, click here.
