This is the room of mystery over which a sizzling row rages in City Hall on April 24, 1941. It is an office of the Board of Public Works that was used, it is charged, as a "listening post" where 6 to 10 girls with headsets have been on duty constantly for months listening in on phone conversations of councilmen and city officials. The arrow points out a recording device which was found in the room by Councilman Roy Hampton.
