When you step off the elevator you go back in time to 1924
The added gold on the elevator doors and ceiling enhance the original
Masonic Hall decor ~ painted figures on the light fixtures, lotus blossoms,
masonic columns and original red and green checkerboard tile
~ recalling also the popular Egyptian craze sweeping the country after
the discovery of King Tut's Tomb in 1921

Original Egyptian decor

The picture to the left shows the Sun-Disc from the original Masonic decor. The scene is of a man on a camel in the desert, with two pyramids in the background.

To the right is a slideshow of pictures found in a box when cleaning out the old Dougherty Press Building. They were taken on a tour by Jim Tresnor through the old Temple rooms in about 1986
