The First Unitarian Society Meeting House sanctuary (or auditorium) during the final stages of construction. Here, members of the congregation who helped during the construction in order to save money, remove planks and scaffolds. Workers are assembling or disassembling scaffolding. The building was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and it is likely that his apprentices, who also aided in the construction, may be pictured here.
