Again from the Houston Post Photo Collection, this time two images taken during the Southwest Conference track and field championship which was held at Rice on May 13th. Both of these pictures brought a smile to my face, the first one because it was nice to see those old stands so full:
And the second one because I was so surprised by those shrubs, which seem to me in their odd little whimsy very uncharacteristic of Rice:
I’d never seen them before and I’m still not completely sure what direction we’re looking although my best guess is north, maybe a bit northwest, so it would be towards where Reckling is today. Note how much of the old wall remains intact here.
Bonus: There is no “I” in Rice.
