Every day I read all the comics, no matter how awful. One of the reliable highlights of the morning comic page for me is the Daily Jumble. I never tire of the laughably easy scrambled words, which start me off for the day with a sense of competence that sometimes lasts until nearly noon.
Today I have for your enjoyment a series of photographs taken of the Rice band sometime in the mid to late 1920s. I found them in an envelope in a folder labeled “Band–Early.” At first I was captivated by some other images of the 1920s era Rice stadium which I will post later. Then I noticed that this group all seem to have been taken on the same day–and what a strange day it was. They were all jumbled up but I’ve spent an unreasonable amount of time trying to put them in the right sequence and this is my best guess. If you think I have it wrong, tell me what you think is the right order. Please show your work.
- Disembarking, apparently in the middle of nowhere. (Isn’t this a gorgeous image?)
6. This is Houston. I’m pretty sure the Brazos Hotel was right across the street from the Southern Pacific railroad station.7. The Hotel Macatee was about a block away from the station. Are they walking home??8. It sure looks like it.
As always, your thoughts are most welcome.
