Time Stamp

Regular readers have listened to me whine about undated photographs for several years now. (I never tire of it!) Recently, though, in the course of a single day I came across two images that were not only dated but on which the exact time was written. Both seem to have been inspired by a sense of occasion. This one was taken at 1o a.m. on Thursday, October 10, 1912, the first day of Rice’s Formal Opening:

This next one was taken immediately after the dedication of Sewall Hall on September 25, 1971. The photographer noted that it was “just after 11:00.”
