I ran into Paul Hester ’71 today in the library, up to his usual mischief. It reminded me of a loose thread from the post about the pictures he took in late 1982 of the Engineering Quad. If you’ll recall, I suggested that somewhere I had seen pictures of these trees being moved to make way for construction of the Mechanical Engineering Building:
A quick check turned up these shots from just before Christmas in 1983:
But here’s something interesting–these are not the photos that I remembered. I will continue looking because the ones I had in mind were much more fun, including as they did images of large numbers of engineers sitting around and supervising.
Extra Credit Question: Ten extra credit points if you know where they took them.
Bonus: Purely by chance I found myself in the Mechanical Engineering Building this very afternoon.
One More Note: To the kind student who kept me from losing my laptop today, I wish you a thousand blessings!
