A newly arisen "tent village" is shown on the grounds of Lincoln High School on North Broadway where three buildings have been condemned and three others closed because of earth slippage beneath the hill on which the school is built. Students are attending classes in the tents and buildings which are not in danger. The auditorium, music and library buildings are to be razed, and the English, administration and boys' gymnasium buildings will remain closed until the other structures, which tower over and threaten them, are removed. Photo date: October 30, 1934.
