Long Description:
This World War I memorial plaque looks like it was manufactured by a company specializing in commemorative plaques and then mounted on a frame built by city workers.

Harold Christianson's name is not listed alphabetically and is not stared, indicating death during the war. I believe is name is centered at the bottom of the two lists for ascetic reason of a cleaner, more uniform presentation.
