Description
Aerial view of San Jose State Normal School with an airplane flying in the upper right hand corner. The school is laid out in a quadrangle. The tower is in the center next to the auditorium. A colonnaded arcade encloses the quadrangle and connects two large classroom buildings to either side. The structure was built of reinforced concrete to replace one destroyed in the 1906 earthquake. It opened in September 1910. The tower and auditorium have survived, but the arcade was demolished in the 1960s.
