The back of the Chemistry Building, 1925:
I’ve mentioned before that I’ve never seen a clear shot of the north side of the Chemistry Building but I found this one yesterday while I was digging around for images of the Chem Lecture Hall doorway. It looks enormous, even bigger than the front, I suppose because the south side is broken up by those wings. Honestly, I’m just thrilled by this.
And as I was walking across the quad yesterday morning it occurred to me that although I’ve seen many pictures of commencement taken from the upper floors of Lovett Hall, I’ve never seen a picture of commencement preparations taken from up there. This is understandable, of course, but I would maintain that the preparations are every bit as photogenic as the event itself. So I climbed up and asked a nice young woman if I could go out on the balcony outside her window in order to remedy this situation myself:
Bonus: I can’t believe I never noticed this before.
