Wisconsin State Capitol Interior — Assembly Detail

Wisconsin State Capitol Interior — Assembly Detail | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Detail of the Assembly Chamber photograph focusing on the journalists seated near the front of the room. During the 19th century, coverage of Capitol news received more attention from the state's newspapers than today. Of special interest is the female reporter in the center of the group and the three young pages. Architectural details revealed by the close view include the carpet pattern, the lamp on the clerk's table, and the Jenny Lind style tables at which the reporters are sitting.
