BARE WHITE ROOM IS BRILLIANTLY DECORATED
CD 1964001 E&MP25.052
The huge, bare white, windowless ball room of a Brooklyn hotel has just become one of the most colorful and brilliantly decorated spots of New York.
It can be instantly painted in any hue by 6,132 concealed electric lamps. The lamps are of three colors only, -- red, blue and green, and clear white --, but 190 dimming rheostats make possible many blends and mixtures.
They are hidden behind flutes and coves in the walls and ceiling and are controlled by one operator from a board of 500 buttons.
