This morning I came across a packet of photos I’d never seen before. Actually, it was more than packet–it was a whole box of images from the Cohen House collection that I’d somehow missed. There turned out to be much of interest in it but I feel that I need to start with this unexpected thing:
If I’m looking at this correctly it’s in between the RMC and the back of Fondren. It’s one of a series of campus views that all seem to have been taken on the same day. (More of these soon.) The label on the back indicates that it was developed in January 1966. Although I suppose it might have been taken any time before then I feel safe in saying that Mr. Cohen was not one to leave undeveloped film sitting around for long so I’d guess it pretty close to that time.
So what is that? Is it art? Science?
