Ground will be broken this week for the foundation of a new building which is to be built at the Harvard Observatory this summer. It will be all ready for use by the first of November.
The building will be 30 ft. wide by 60 ft. long and three stories high. It will be of plain brick and of slow burning or mill construction. F. B. Furbish is the contractor, and the price is to be $14,000.
Several of the rooms will be used for the storage and preservation of the many valuable photographic negatives belonging to the Observatory, and there will also be several computation rooms.
