Description A crowd of people attends the cornerstone laying of the new Post Office in New Brunswick, N.J. on July 15, 1936. There are people in chairs and a podium in the right middle of the frame, so the crowd was likely listening to a speech as they waited for the cornerstone to be laid down. This shot is after the parade shown in related images.
