When Trees Were the Right Height

The Old High School - on the Corner

A New Building - with Shorter Trees

With no political offense intended, there is no doubt that for the Class of '62 the trees were clearly "of the right height" in comparison to today's version.  City codes have probably changed, too, since the original trees were outside of the sidewalk in what is probably city right-of-way.

The old gym, pictured below, is scarcely visible on the new photo since it was taken from the same approximate location as the original, and new buildings block the arch view on the west end, but the arched roof can be made out behind the blue roof of the new building.  For those who haven't been in town for a long time, the view below seems more like one taken of a building unknown.
