                               Views from the Clock Tower

Rankin Hall Kids Goodwin Hall Kids Joiner Hall Upper School Extracurricular Activities Sports Class Trip to Raleigh Class Trip to Florida Class Trip to Georgia Mystery Lake Myers Views from the Clock Tower Debris Page
 

These pictures you see on this page was really the result of someone else's mistake. During the middle weekend of the two week football camp, before school started in August, 1969, I roamed the empty halls of Main Building looking for a way to enter the Clock Tower. While roaming, I found a camera, believe it or not, no lie, with a fresh roll of film.
 
Well, of course I wasn't going to leave the camera, because in a week someone else was gonna take it, so I figured, why not me. Anyways, I found the access to the tower, took these pictures, and gee, history is made! It's on the internet!

Click on the picture to enlarge:



  Southeast view, Western Piedmont Community College is
  the group of buildings in the middle.




  South view, looking over "New Gym".





  West view, overlooking Upper School. If it wasn't hazy
  that day, Table Rock could've be seen.



  This picture was taken from the north side of the tower,
  with the camera angled towards the heart of Morganton.
  For reference purposes, Upper School would be located at
  the left of this picture. When you enlarge this picture,
  Fleming Dr. can be seen on the lower left.
