When this Tampa Times photograph was taken Dec. 2, 1962, Carrollwood Elementary School was nearing completion. Occupancy of the $368,000 12-classroom building was scheduled for Dec. 15, with the first students being transferred from Twin Lakes School. The campus is on the corner of Orange Grove Drive and MacFarland Road, and these views are of the Orange Grove Drive frontage of the structure, today identified as Building 6.
