Oakland Tabernacle Original Chapel Interior

(Photo Courtesy Oakland California Stake) For additional photos posted of this building, see here. As you can see, the only remaining portion of the rostrum are the decorative elements above the original opening. Also remaining are portions of the ceiling including the decorative ventilation grilles. While the trim, glass and mullions have changed, the small round windows above each window also remain. Finally, the windows on the left side of the photo still remain, but have been covered by additions to the building and no longer fully open to the exterior.
