Description

A view of the west and south sides of Barge Hall built in 1893-1984 was the first building of the Washington State Normal School. Barge Hall is located on the north side of 8th Avenue between D and E Streets. Leafless trees which surrounded the building and dark smoke raising from the chimneys created a bleak view of Barge Hall in this winter scene. A large residential house located in the open fields behind Barge Hall can be seen in the background.
