Only a few days in & they workers have been busy!
Fair warning, the following images may not be for the faint of heart….
Upstairs, they’ve pulled off more of the paneling & disconnected the radiators.
Downstairs is where most of the work’s been happening. They’ve pulled out all the drop ceilings.
This is directly above where the downstairs circulation desk used to be.
And then there’s the reading room! Wow…
A closer shot of the old ceiling that was above the drop ceiling in the reading room.
The story room! They’re pulling out the old vault. We had no idea that is was all brick.
Closer shots of the vault. Looks like the top was curved on one side.
That’s a lot of bricks.
