Photo shows a parlor or sitting room of the Delger house. There are several silk, cushioned armchairs scattered around the room. In the center is a marble-toped oval table with a chandelier hanging from the ceiling directly over it. Against one wall is a silk cushioned sofa. Two portraits, of a man and a woman, are hanging on one wall and several landscape paintings are hanging on the other walls. Shutters can be seen through the lace drapes on the window. The moulding at the top of the walls and the ceiling are decorated with flower and vine pattern. The carpeting on the floor appears to match the pattern on the ceiling. There is a fireplace at the back of the room with the mantle decorated with several nicknacks. This appears to be the other half of the room shown in H99.28.1D. (D. Curry, 8/12/99) Per Inez Brooks-Myers, the floor is covered in wall-to-wall carpeting. The furniture spread around the room is a "suite of furniture." In the bottom left corner, in front of the sofa is an upholstered foot stool.
