Painting school board clock tower, 1980

Posted on August 29, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

Jack Burnett and Johnny Shepard, painters for the B.L. Radden Company, had little room to work, and little margin for error, in July 1980, as they prepared the clock tower atop the Fayette County school board building on East Main Street for a fresh coat of paint. The building was originally Henry Clay High School, which opened in 1928. The school moved to it’s current location on Fontaine Roads in 1970. Photo by E. Martin Jessee | Staff
