Another interesting photo from Shorpy
This one simply shows a man sitting in what is apparently a dormitory room. The wall calendar dates it to 1910-11. If you click to image to enlarge it, there are many aspects to explore; to me the most interesting are the baseball cards on the wall. Those appear to be the original cards that were packaged in cigarette packs; today they would be worth a fortune...
