I spent yet another day today working through the pile of unidentified pictures from Public Affairs. I’m getting close to the bottom of the pile, but I’m nearly cross-eyed from trying to sort all these out–most of them are slides and I wind up twisting and squinting up into the light to get a better look at them. Because I’m getting close to the end, what’s left of the pile is now almost completely random. There are still hundreds of images of buildings, people doing things or just walking around, and a wide variety of scenic locations on campus. They’re just all mixed together. Here are a few that interested me, in no particular order, which is exactly the way I found them.
Here’s something you can’t see anymore, as there is now a residential college on top of it. I must have seen at least four hundred pictures of Lovett Hall in this collection and hundreds more of the academic quad, but I believe this is the only image of this spot that exists in the archives. There are a lot of places that haven’t been photographed at all.
This is actually a little embarrassing. Sometimes I’ll run across a shot that was taken from an angle that’s unfamiliar to me and I just can’t figure out what I’m looking at. I was completely stumped by this one. I actually sought help! I won’t tell you what we were guessing, only that our guesses were preposterous. It wasn’t until I uploaded it just now that I realized it’s Del Butcher Hall seen from the intramural field. Sheesh.
I put this one in because it has a helicopter in it. It looks like it might be a Veteran’s Day observation.
With luck, I’ll have something more coherent to say tomorrow. No promises, though.
