Lobby display   ...   Part of the Larkin Gallery   ...   Mural is an enlarged postcard   ...

"You'll notice the postcard reproduction on the wall behind the model shows a wall to the East of the building along the Annex. That never existed as far as I know, certainly not when the building was first completed. There was a public school building very close to the Admin. building at that time facing Swan. The remains of the wall existing now were to the west of the building. That was a retaining wall separating the Larkin from the New York Central rail yards immediately to the west of the wall and on a level several feet higher." - Arlan Peters, June 2018
