    How do I find a photograph of the U.S. Senate committee room in 1921?

      I am researching the life of a person who testified in October 1921, before a  subcommittee of the U.S. Senate Committee on Education and Labor. The proceedings were published under the title West Virginia Coal Fields. I'd like to find a photograph of the room the hearings were held in.

      It was identified on the first page as the Capitol's  "Committee Room." Two of the  subcommittee's senators were Kenyon and McKellar. I know I probably need to start with a query to office of the Senate Historian and/or the Library of Congress, but I don't know how to frame my question--Advice?
