I idly opened up a box last week even though it was clearly labeled as containing negatives. Negatives are no fun whatsoever–the only way to really see what’s on one is to scan it–so I tend to avoid them whenever possible. I can’t explain why I suddenly opened this box. Predictably, it was full of fantastic images unlike any we have in the main photo files.
First up, Ryon Lab. This set was taken right after the demolition of what had been there before, the building called the Engineering Annex, which had itself evolved out of the original Chemistry Annex. Whoever took them had the presence of mind to walk all the way around the construction site so we can see what I’m really interested in (hint: it’s not construction).
Bonus: Ever wonder where stuff like this comes from?
