Name of CreatorP. Norman Button
DescriptionOutside, taken at a height looking over some scaffolding towards various university buildings in differing stages of construction. Below the scaffolding railing where the photographer stands, is a row of white temporary wooden huts/ cabins and in front of this is a stack of wooden planks and another of bricks. Power cables run over the top of the huts. On the right of the huts the corner of a tall building is visible which has much of its outer structure done and windows installed. It has scaffolding up around it. Over the road, on the far left hand side of the photo is the library building still under construction with five levels, the top three of which have window frames in. A small stepladder is visible in the far left of the second level, near the edge. The sun is shining on this building but the road and nearside buildings are in shade. In front of the library are stacks of wooden frames, wooden posts and bricks, some of which have covers draped over them. A man is working near a cement mixer and on the road just beyond this a small tractor with a trailor is parked. The next building along is not so far along in the construction stage and has part of the first level underway (forming an L shape). Pillars form a square boarder around the edge of this building site space and approximately six men are working here/ within this. There is some scaffolding with plastic sheeting around it in the space between this building's area and the library. Various other buildings are seen to the right of, and behind, the one level partly constructed building. In the background is a misty scene of residential housing, other buildings, fields and trees.
