Central Library, Movement of books to new Library of Commerce, Science and Technology.
Description:
1955. In 1955 the Library of Commerce, Science and Technology move from the Art Gallery to a much larger space in the Tiled Hall of the Central Library, in which a new gallery had been erected to provide even more room. 20,000 books had to be transported from the basement to the gallery. Here, two female library workers are taking a trolley full of books from the basement stairhead through the new library to the crane which will lift them up to the gallery.
