Old Chemistry Building Windows, 1998

We recently acquired a large group of photographs of the 1998-99 renovation of the old Chemistry Building, all labeled, in good order, and accompanied by the negatives. (Thanks, Bruce Cooper!) As usual, the images of the demo are the most interesting. You can really get a great look at the interior spaces, which will keep me occupied for a while:

The picture that caught my attention right away was this one:

Check out those open windows! What’s the deal there? There’s a shot taken from the inside where you can see how they work:

I don’t care who you are, that is some fantastic hardware. I’m going to see if I can find some drawings.

Bonus: Eppley Airfield, Omaha, Nebraska. Noon today. Bleak.
