Hall School Construction (13)

Universal Studio - 1955

Taken the same day as number 12 in the series,and this photograph presents the same view as numbers 1, 8, and 10 easily identified by the leaning utility pole at the corner. The same ladder resting against the upper beam (in number 12) can be seen between the light pole on the right and the arm of the crane on the left. Construction workers are on the site but difficult to see. The old Hall School is behind the new structure. Several cars and a truck are parked on Shamrock St., and the car fully visible on brick-paved Grandville Ave., on the far right, appears to be an Oldsmobile.
