Celebrating Clifton Park High

Image Number PP30.152 [now part of PP8] Hughes Studio Photograph Collection, 
This image of the cornerstone laying at Clifton High School in 1924 is more interesting when one considers the events preceding this ceremony, including a scandal about the substitution of sub-standard construction materials and public outcry over the school's location close to a busy traffic corridor on Harford Road at 25th Street.
