When Admiral King High School was New

Since I've got Lorain high schools on my mind, I might as well keep going with it as a topic. Here's another photo and caption that ran in the Journal on December 7, 1960. (Click on it for a close view.) It shows a nice aerial view of Admiral King High School, which was then under construction.

Since I've been out of there for more than 30 years, the labeled photo is a nice refresher course to reacquaint myself with the layout of the building and campus. (This knowledge will come in handy during my next trip to the building, which will undoubtedly be in a few years when the inevitable 'say goodbye' open house occurs before the wrecking ball swings!)

Who is going to get that big old anchor in front of AKHS....I guess a better question is " Is it still there" and where did it come from??

Hi Jeff,

The anchor is still there, guess I'm going to have to drive over there and see if there is a plaque or something!
