Hall School Construction (17)

Universal Studio - 1956

Quite a difference from number 15 in the series which shows the same scene two months before. Old Hall School is still visible in the background, but the new building dominates the photograph. Windows have been installed, outer walls have been added, and construction materials are standing on the ground outside the building. In the near foreground is a Chevrolet Bel Air and several other vehicles can be seen in the photograph. The brick paving of Grandville Ave. can be seen, and snow covers the ground. The tilted utility pole orients the photograph as it does in others in the series.
