Chemistry Lane, 1941

Another startling image from the camera of Neil Brennan, this one labeled “Chemistry Lane”:

I was only confused momentarily. I’ve noticed this before but from very different angles. You can see it here in this 1946 aerial, the long diagonal line that runs from the inner loop just west of the Chemistry Building all the way out to Rice Boulevard:

Neil Brennan is the only person I’ve ever come across who thought to take a picture from inside.

Bonus: Horse shit.
