Extent1 black and white photograph
Name of CreatorP. Norman Button
DescriptionOutside view looking onto the construction of various university buildings close by. The building, in the foregound on the far left of the photo has a concrete floor and some wall structures up. In the centre of two wall layers is a row of metal rods which make a low fence, and two men are working either side of this. In the immediate foreground, a crane rises up into the air and either side of it sit large piles of wooden posts (under two metres in length). A sign with two parts is on the right hand side of the crane. In the photo mid-ground is more of the metal fencing and a workman is standing on the right of these looking down to the right at another metal fence in his hand. This metal fence sits on some building foundations/ a concrete base block. There is a road/ pathway behind the man and some more buildings on the other side of that. One building has one level complete and a wooden double door, which is open. The building on the right of this has scaffolding up around it and its second level is in the process of being constructed. On the left of the crane is another building also with scaffolding around it and some of its windows installed. There is a taller section of scaffolding in an L shaped corner of this building and two men are working on the roof just to the left of this; a ladder is propped up against the building just in front of it and further in front of the building is a man pushing a wheelbarrow. Behind these buildings are more university buildings further along in their stage of construction and a crane arm can be seen protruding through a gap between the rows of buildings. In the background on the right, a foggy view of houses/ trees can be seen.
