Speech watching 1: Where is the speech taking place?

Parson’s Hall, Hartford , Connecticut (Site of Emily Pankhurst’s Freedom or Death Speech)
What is the space normally used for?

What is it made of?
How do people sit, stand, move?
Who has access?
What sounds are there? What smells?
How is it lit?
What symbols are there?
Are there different levels?
Is it safe?
What is beyond the space?
