I’ve been sitting around this afternoon looking at some images I scanned and then forgot about over the last year and I was quite taken with these two by Rice Accounting professor Verne Simons. No wonder I scanned them!
They’re not dated but I can tell from aerial photos and from the size of the trees on the north side of the Administration Building that they must have been taken in the early 1930s.
(We’ve seen something very close to this first image once before, by the way, a picture found in Dr. Lovett’s desk when he died.)
The second shot is a view I’ve never come across anywhere else:
I’m grateful to Professor Simons for his documentary thoroughness.
