For the months of November, December and January, Oak Ridge Public Library is displaying photographs and prints from the Oak Ridge Room collection.
Three large aerial photographs highlight the Woodland neighborhood. The date of these photographs is uncertain, but there is a large open field where Downtown Shopping Center was built, so the images were probably taken in the early 1950s.
Also on display is Clark Center’s “diploma” from Clinton Engineer Works. Mr. Center was known as “Mr. Carbide,” and was awarded the “onery degree of Atom Buster.”
