|NC Education Building Being Built|
My great grandfather Connie M. Howard (1891-1995) worked in construction. He would often need to leave his family to travel to where he could find work. One area he found work in was Raleigh, NC. Above is a photograph of the (old) NC Education Building being built. It is located in downtown Raleigh across from the old Capitol Building. The 1936 Raleigh directory lists my great grandfather as a “hoisting eng”. I suspect the crane in the photograph is the one he operated.
