Box 3 Folder 7: "Moving along to folder 7 are pictures from the WJLD studios, and this is a different picture but it does show the tower and it shows a Buick parked out front. It’s a 1954 license plate so that’s how come we know there was still some kind of connection to this building back then. The sign is still up as well. That’s on the Bessemer Superhighway of course. This copy could have come from the a negative from the Graf Photo collection from Bessemer or from Erin Connolly's husband. From the mid 1990's."
