Questions for Photo 5 and Drawing 1

1. Note that the Dai Loy Gambling House is now a museum. Should a gambling hall be preserved? Why or why not?

2. Compare the floor plan of the Dai Loy Gambling Museum and the interior view. Where was the photographer standing? What rooms, features, and equipment shown in both visuals can be identified?

2. Notice the opening to the second floor, from which the first floor could be monitored. Why would the room need to be monitored?

* The visuals on the screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of Photo 5, and Drawing 1, but be aware that each file will take about 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
