|Title||Library in portable classroom at Ballard High School, Seattle, 1937 |
|Caption||In March 1937, Seattle residents turned down a school bond levy designed to relieve overcrowded classrooms expanding existing schools and building new ones. Ballard High School had over 2, 000 students at the time, 450 of whom went to classes in wooden portable buildings on the school grounds. Plans had included the expansion of the school's library which was originally designed for only sixty students.|
