Rare Grand Staircase Photo: Full dome

I found this online in a flickr photo stream... It's from the Olympic. Does this look real to you or a drawing? The post in the corner isn't as decorative as in other pictures... It could be a drawing, but in my hopes this is an actual photo recently discovered!

sorry it's a drawing and not completely accurate, probably an early design illustration.
It was like that when I got here

Are you sure it's a drawing?

How is it inaccurate? it looks so real to me and looks as close to the real dome as we can get.

Take a close look at the centre piece, it's smudged and you can see the pencil lines that have been partially erased. The design of the glass panels is not accurate when compared to the finished article.
