This image is completely unremarkable–alumni arriving at the brand spanking new RMC to work on planning the 1959 Rice Day. I guess I can work up a little bit of interest in the driveway, which isn’t a driveway anymore, but what’s more eye-catching is the photograph as an artifact in and of itself. Does anyone know what type of device produced this? At first I thought it was like a polaroid but on closer inspection I don’t think that’s right. I’m also curious about why I don’t see more like this, although it might be that someone just failed to do the usual thing and tear off the pointed end. Bonus:
Extra Bonus: Speaking of Rice Day, I almost forgot about this post. It has received more hits than any other post on this blog. By a lot. Don’t think too hard about why.
