These photos are from the Harvard library‘s collection of images and are circa 1899. Tradition is supplied by the furniture, wallpaper, paintings, etc., and youth is supplied by the timely ephemera tacked alongside.
I’ll leave you with a kicker: In case you find the wallpaper a bit old-fashioned, here’s an alternative from the same time period. Charles Dana Gibson’s humorous illustration, “Design For A Bachelor’s Wall Paper.”
