A life size portrait of Mr. Porter done in oil painting adorns the Hall. The club moved into the Hall as soon as it was completed and is functioning in the building ever since then continuously down to this day. The building was electrified by an oil engine and motor and fitted with electric lights and fans by Shri A. Subramaniya Iyer - a prominent member of the Club who advanced the necessary funds as a loan to the Club and recouped it in driblets in the succeeding years. This was done several years before the Kumbakonam Electric Supply Corporation came into being and began to supply the town with electricity. Several additions to the building repairs and repainting to the building were done at considerable expense. A fountain was put up in front of the Hall in the name of Dewan Bahadur Raghunatha Rao who was a member of the Club.
Formerly there were 4 classes of members depending on the income of the members. But after India attained independence and the equality of the citizens was inscribed in its Constitution, the Club in confirmity with the spirit of the times abolished the distinction between the members. There are now only 2 classes of members, viz the resident and non-resident members.
Some years after the Club threw its doors open to lady members and some ladies became members of the Club. Years later a separate ladies club was formed in the town and due to this reason there are now no lady members in this Club.
