Two recent photographs of the Central arch

Walking on West Dayton Street towards Wisconsin Avenue this afternoon, I stopped to take a photographof the Central arch, the only remaining vestige of the Cass Gilbert-designed building that was home to Madison Central High School until from 1908 until 1969.

I wanted to take some photographs of the inside of the arch, but there was no access from either the MATC side or the Wisconsin Avenue side. Perhaps the orange barrier is seasonal. Let's hope it's not a harbinger of another attempt to demolish the arch.

Note: This post also appears on the Central history blog
