    There used to be a loft in the peak of the ceiling of the cafeteria building, there was a very narrow stairs leading up to the loft, kind of tricky to climb in ski boots, everything seemed to be covered in long shag carpet, the teens used to go up there to smoke, it was so popular that you had to wait until someone left, so you could climb up and have a smoke. I dont know when that loft was built or when it was removed, but I was up there about 1968-1970.
    If anyone remembers when the loft was removed, please post your information.
