  1. Love this, thanks for posting. I lived in Beverly then and remember seeing the work progress. Had never seen a building lifted up for excavation and construction like that. Fascinated me – still does.

  2. As a young man I accompanied my father to see the progress. The building was still only supported by the huge beams, and they had just begun to dig what is now Hale Hall.
