Drennan v. Star Paving

Monte_vista_school_1 One of Justice Traynor's most famous contracts decisions is Drennan v. Star Paving, in which the court rewrote the economics of the contracting industry by holding that, in effect, subcontractor bids created option contracts even where the prime didn't pay for the option.  I recently ran across this picture of what appears to be the school that was the subject of the contract, Monte Vista Elementary School in Lancaster, California.
