Project Preparation

The ceiling is rolled or stamped tin and nearly 12 feet high and so requires scaffolding to work on. Slate blackboards are on all four walls of the room. All surfaces of the room are dirty since the room has been unused for about 40 years and probably not painted for some years before that.
