The dome and lobby of the Hotel Bentley over time

Hotel Bentley lobby in the 1970s

Hotel Bentley lobby dome as it appeared on opening day in 1908

All 46 states were painted in spaces around the lobby and dome (see 2 photos below) in keeping with the detail of the dome itself. Some time along the way these details were painted over and lost.
