Cars, Trucks and People on Main Street July 17, 1955

Another view of the activity on Main Street prior to the Grand Opening. I love the hustle and bustle of not only the workers on the sidewalk, but also the vehicles on the street. I have a feeling that the last days of construction were hectic and very stressful especially for Admiral Joe Fowler who was tasked with this enormous construction project.

Look at that gigantic TV camera on top of the Carnation building. I'll bet there were a lot of people wondering if they would ever get things ready in time for the television show.
