The old Seventh Army Training Corps barracks. The building to the right housed the first Industrial Arts Department at WKU. State Street is in the foreground and 15th street is just off the right margin of the picture. It was located on the lot where the College High Hall is now located. The little office in the middle housed the Army office. The next barracks were part of the Army establishment and the building farthest to the left housed the cafeteria.
