Old Parquet Floors with Inlays at The Showers Mansion Bloomington, Indiana

The house is The Showers Mansion and it is located in Bloomington, Indiana. We have some date on this particular house, data that helps putting it on the history map. It has been built by a furniture magnate (W. Edward Showers) in the year 1904  (suppose 1904 is the year it was finished). The blogger which has published the image below - http://housesandbooks.wordpress.com/2011/08/03/the-showers-mansion-of-bloomington/ - does mention that ”the house has intricate parquet floors in every room”. Unfortunately there is a single image published. The parquet floor looks in excellent shape over 100 years from installation.
