From a email from Vincent Maola:

"As I recall, we went over to the basement section of the Memorial Auditorium in 1947 or 1948 and felt that it was fantastic. Large wooden structures that elevated the band and we would CARRY those heavy sections upstairs for concerts. No practice rooms..only the large rehearsal room. When I became Band Director in 1960, we knocked down some walls and made practice rooms for ensembles and individual practice...not the Taj Mahal situations in new buildings today, but, they were usable."

Choir rehersal.

Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law.
