I was looking at this pretty early picture of the Nuclear Research Lab (later named the Bonner Lab in memory of Tom Bonner ’32, ’34), intently studying the landscaping when I finally looked over at the sleek automobile over on the left. And then I noticed that . . . other thing . . . next to it.
I have seen a lot of vehicles in these old pictures, from mule-drawn wagons to scooters to all kinds of tractors, golf carts, and jalopies and even an occasional ice cream truck but I have never seen anything like that before. Usually you can tell at glance what the function of a vehicle is. Not here, though.
Also–I’m just going to say it–it is ugly. A mule is better looking than that thing.
Bonus: This is prettier.
