The deed was presented to Councilman James Corman by Thomas J. Woods, resident manager of the company, who said the firm was aware of the inherent dangers of the present Woodman alignment and hoped the acquisition would expedite the project." Pictured are, City Councilman James C. Corman, left, as he accepts deed to land of Schlitz Brewing Co. from Thomas J. Wood, center, Schlitz resident manager, and Alvin Wolski, Wood's assistant.
