03/22/14 70 W, 5 I - + 7 - 6 Vintage Raleigh Training Tower Photo

Found this in my files of "to be scanned" historical photos. Undated, though the attire has the look of 1950s or 1960s. The tower in the photo was built in 1954, on the grounds of the current fire department training center. Back of photo reads "Tom Franklin's - Commercial Photographer - 210 W. 4th Street- Charlotte, N.C." Click to enlarge:

I remember the day that was tore down. It’s hard to believe that was almost 9 years ago.

The photographer, Tom Franklin, was my father. I wonder why he was shooting in Raleigh. Tom Franklin Studios contracted to do all the news photography for The Charlotte News. Anyway, thanks for sharing these.
