After our brief 1957 excursion in 4×5 negatives, we’re back in 1956, so we’ll be looking at press format sized negatives again.
These images all relate to the ground breaking for the new St-Mary’s school in May (?) 1956. I believe Joel followed up with some construction-in-progress images also later that year.
The school is located on North El Dorado Street, 1 mile east of San Joaquin Delta College and 2 miles north of the University of the Pacific.
The shot above is great as it just catches a couple of latecomers at left for the group photo. Last row right, attention please !
Next series of images were taken later of course, there are no date references on the box, so one and other must be located in the archives of the school itself.
Short and sweet job for Joel. Few construction-in-progress images of this series were copied or printed.
