Construction work on Ryde Civic Centre, 29 April 1963. This photo is probably more interesting because of the buildings in the background, rather than what is being built in the foreground. Looking south, from left to right, is the Ryde School of Arts, two shops, Masonic Temple and a lime, cement and sand supplier. Ryde Library Service. Acc. 5089522. Ryde Civic Centre / 4.
