I am quite taken with this image. I’ve never seen another one like it, which is always interesting, and it has the added pleasure of beautiful ironwork:
I wasn’t immediately sure where it was taken, largely because of the ironwork, which is surely long gone. (Note that it’s similar to the decorative metal on the quad side windows of Lovett Hall.)
