Aspen History: Building the Red Brick

One 2.25" x 2.25" b/w negative of the construction of the gymnasium at the Red Brick School, fall 1953. Sam Caudill was the architect.

“Hendricks wins bid to build school auditorium,” announced the Aspen Daily Times on July 16, 1953. “The contract to build the addition to the school building [the Red Brick School], consisting of three class rooms and an auditorium-gymnasium, was awarded to Horace Hendricks at the special board meeting on July 7, on the bid of $105,946.00. The board decided that in accepting the base bid that after adding architects fees they would negotiate the addition of all the items eliminated possible. The base bid consisted of only the bare space and since that was well within the limit of $120,000 voted, they will adjust the alternates in construction along with the equipment necessary so that the rooms and auditorium can be used to good advantage the first year.” This photo shows the construction of the gymnasium at the Red Brick School, fall 1953. Sam Caudill was the architect.
