Old Broad St Jr. Hi School Gym as of May 29, 2014
The Burlington Recreation and Parks Administration agreed to let me inside to take some photographs. I thank them for that.
I had not been in that gym for 57 years. I had many good memories including playing on the Elks Basketball Team under Coach Ken Quernel, and phys ed classes.
The 2 classroom buildings, including the cafeteria in the basement of one of the buildings, were torn down uears ago, and replaced with office buildings.
There are student and faculty photos on this web site that were taken in that gym in 1957:
Front Door...now closed off...entrance is on the side now.
The gym is now AIR CONDITIONED!!
This photo is similar to the previous one, but shows all the way to the top of the building. The colors in the brick are beautiful.
Right side of the gym...some rooms have been added on.
Rear of the gym...where the after lunch fights were held
Note the new ceiling and lights
The old pull-out bleachers have been removed, and new ones added on the stage.
Another view from center court...I can still see Gene Wrenn arching those high set shots that hit nothing but net.
