This image includes 5 people at the construction site of the Singing Tower at Mountain Lake Sanctuary (now Bok Tower Gardens). The two men are (L to R) Edward W. Bok, former editor of Ladies' Home Journal and founder of Mountain Lake Sanctuary, and Major Harry M. Nornabell, then director of the Sanctuary. The seated women are likely Catherine Van Dyke Nornabell, Major Nornabell's wife and former employee of Ladies' Home Journal, Ursula Nornabell, their daughter, and an unidentified woman. Construction equipment is visible in the background in preparation for driving the pilings for the Singing Tower. The date is based on the progress shown in the image on construction. This negative is included in a set of three books which include Mr. Burrell's photographic documentation of the construction of the Singing Tower.
