Spokane Bids the Best for Thompson Hall
I was doing some research in the 1894 Spokane Chronicle newspaper when I ran onto this article on the new building to be built at the State University. This article is from the Spokane Chronicle May 10, 1894 page 3.
I hope Donna does not mind that I borrowed a copy of the postcard she bought showing Thompson Hall at Washington State University in 1903. The above article describes the building to be built and that two Spokane Contractors won the bid to build Thompson Hall. 1893, 1894 and 1895 was bad times in the USA due to a recession, so any work these contractors got would help them in this bad time.
