Well, I’m in New York for a few days so we’re going to have to rely on whatever I can find on this flash drive. Luckily, I’ve managed to collect a lot of random Rice historical miscellany over the last couple of years so there should be no problem as long as you don’t expect War and Peace.
Ever since I came to Rice lo these many years ago, I’ve parked my car out in the stadium lot. Hence, I see the back of the Shepherd School every day when I’m walking back to my car from the library. I have a pretty good idea what it looks like, but not long ago I came across this picture that was interesting to me because I can’t recall it looking like this and I can’t figure out how to date it. The thing that jumps out at me is that there aren’t any sidewalks yet.
Just for reference, here’s roughly the same view taken last week. There’s been quite a bit of change.
Finally, here’s an aerial of construction from ten years ago. I think we can safely conclude that the first picture is older than this, but how much I don’t know. Anyone?
Bonus: The moon on Tuesday morning.
Extra Bonus: Lots of tall buildings here.
