Roughly the same spot, roughly fifty years apart. The first set, I’m almost certain, is from this meet in the spring of 1916 (Rice left the Southwest Conference in 1916 and rejoined it in 1918, by the way, which is why it’s a TIAA meet):
The images were made from some of the glass plate negatives that Tommy Lavergne gave me a couple of years ago:
The second set is also undated but must have been taken in the late 1960s, maybe for the media guide:
Bonus: Who knows where this is?
