Photographs are of homes in India, with several close-up shots of decorative lattice-work and other ornamental design. Included are two photos of Lockwood's apartment in New York City. There also are 14 pp. of advertisements at the back of the book. The advertisements are from firms that supply architectural and interior elements such as those seen in these photographs, and all the ads have been presented with a distinctly Indian decorative motiff. These designs may have been drawn by De Forest (Starosciak).
