More interior pictures of the structure are available (here).

Construction began in 1935, twenty-two years after the creation of the Federal Reserve System and following the Board of Governors’ decision to consolidate its Washington, D.C., staff into one central building. The new $3.5 million structure, was a “modernist interpretation of the Beaux-Arts style”.
