The grandly spacious interior of the Cincinnati Museum Center/Union Depot Rotunda…note the WPA murals that outline the city’s history, also the metal grills at floor level on either side of the central walkway (toward the right in this photo), behind which are the main organ chambers (Solo &Great/Pedal on the left, Choir &Swell on the right), and the ‘window’ above the doorway (on the far left of this photo), which hides the Antiphonal division.  Now you understand about the resonance of the space!
