The Drawing Room

Picture 58 of 63

This is the drawing room, back on the first floor of the mansion. This room is where the ladies would gather after a meal, while the men stayed in the dining room, smoking cigars and drinking brandy. The mirrors on the wall reflected light, making the room brighter. Mirrors that size were expensive in the 19th century, and showed wealth.
