Exterior view of the Italian style Frary Dining Hall on the Pomona College campus in Claremont. The dining hall was part of architect Sumner Spaulding's expansion in the late 1920s and early 1930s of the men's residential dormitory complex on north campus; the layout of the residential campus is organized by gender, north (male) and south (female). The hall design was inspired by Myron Hunt's quadrangle-courtyard campus plan of 1908-1914.
