                                              doubts. “The windows on St. Mary Hall are rounded at the top, and the windows in the
                                              picture are rectangular,” she said. “I don’t know the date of the photograph, but there
                                              was electricity in the building by 1898.” Whatever early dining hall this photo depicts,
                                              there’s no doubt that students today have much more appealing dining options,
