Back when the center hall served as a theatre, the Alumni Building entrance of Alumni Hall made sure playgoers knew where they were headed. The sign was changed once the theatre operations were transferred to the fine arts building upon its completion in the 1960s.
This is a shot of the south side of Alumni Hall some time after 1960. The back side of Alumni Hall has a lot of green leafy landscaping, too, which is different from other shots of the building we’ve seen. Car buffs get bonus points and bragging rights if they can identify the make and model of the car in the foreground!
The square cement pads that served as anchors for the steel supports on the east and west outside walls are being excavated and broken up, following removal of the steel itself earlier in the year.
