A Change of Address, 1926

For a very long time the Rice Institute had its business offices in downtown Houston, mostly because the critical need for classroom and lab space meant that there just wasn’t any room to spare on campus but also partly because downtown was where business got done in those days. The offices moved a few times over the years–this is the announcement of one of those moves–and some fine day when I have time I will try to sort out the timing of them all.

This is all by way of telling you that Mr. Rice History Corner and I are are moving tomorrow–three whole blocks!–and that I won’t be posting again until Monday. I managed to keep writing all summer, through death and birth, a bout of the flu, vacation, visiting relatives, and the general chaos of trying to help take care of a 4 year-old and a 2 year-old, but I admit defeat here.

  1. “Removal notice” sounds dire. Like something you would do to an Italian Cypress.

  2. Jeff Ross says:

    Moving three blocks can be harder than moving 300 miles because of the temptation to move some things yourselves. Best of luck!

  3. Looking at the Bonus photo, I have an overpowering urge to do something silly with the traffic cone and the crown of the lamppost lantern. The scene just cries out for some intervention.
