In the last few weeks we've had two separate snowstorms (albeit close together), and we're about to get hit with a torrential downpour this weekend. But while weather and 102nd Anniversary Gala preparations have prevented blog updates, these circumstances haven't slowed down work on the Willow Grove Branch construction site.
In the first of a few posts today, we'll be bringing you up to speed on how the site has progressed since early February. In our last post, we shared pictures of the pre-fabricated forms that were erected in preparation for poured concrete. Take down those forms, and voilà, walls!
Point of interest: The ridge that runs around these concrete walls is actually where the bottom-most layer of the brick facade will be laid.
You can also make out the shadow of our intrepid photographer, Settlement's Facilities Manager Bob Giannone.
And taken from my favorite angle, compare the following shot with one taken back in December.
Come back later today for a few shots in the recent snow, as well some work done earlier this week.
