I dropped my laptop today and wrecked the screen. Seriously! It was time for a new one anyway but I didn’t have the happy-go-lucky afternoon I expected when the day dawned. Still, I perked up a bit when I came across this image of the front parking lot. It’s labeled 1959 and I’m prepared to believe it based on the cars, especially that nifty little one at right:
If the date is correct this would be very near the end of its useful existence as a parking lot. By the time Kenneth Pitzer was inaugurated out there in 1960 it was a lawn. I’ll show you a picture of that tomorrow, after I’ve had a chance to get my new technology squared away.
Bonus: This is kind of how I feel.
