November 1964 — Progress on Construction of the Hackett Boulevard Church

Our first post featured a snapshot of the July 1964 groundbreaking for St. Paul’s new building on Hackett Boulevard. Today, we have a gallery of images showing the progress of construction, from a set of slides in the church archives. The slides are all labeled November 1964, but they seem to represent several months of early construction.

The first three show early clearing and excavation of the site, with much of the original landscape is still visible.

The remainder seem to have been taken several months later, with construction well begun. It’s hard to orient oneself, but the roof-line of McEwan Hall is clear. Can the girdered structure be the choir room?
