Description:

"Built around 1871, Wakefield’s Town Hall was used as the High School until 1923. It was originally much more elaborate, and this mashup shows the elegant roof which was removed, along with much of the building’s other ornamentation, when it was converted into town offices in the 1930s." - caption provided by Jeff Klapes, contest entrant.
