Pickfair dining room, circa early 1920s and after a 1925 remodel

Pickfair dining room, circa early 1920sThis is how the dining room at Pickfair looked in the early 1920s. Two things surprises me: all those floor-to-ceiling windows allowing in lots of California light—for some reason, I pictured it darker than that. Also, the dining table has places for only six people. I’d have thought Mary and Doug’s dining table would have been far larger than that, so I assume that this was just their casual one for more intimated dining.

Here’s how that room looked after a 1925 remodel:

    I’d guess that they had at least one if not two leaves that would go into the dining table to extend it. Note that they have additional chairs on the edges of the room which would be put into use for larger parties.
