You almost never see it in pictures. I guess it’s kind of an in-between place and not especially scenic. People pose in front of Lovett Hall but not there so much. The other day, though, I stumbled across a picture that someone took from an odd angle between the building and the old road. It took me a moment to understand what it was. The photo was taken facing across the quad, at some difficult to determine time. We can see Cohen House and Palmer Church, so it has to be at least the late ’20s, but otherwise it’s tough to pin down. The state of the hedges might be the best clue. I’ll look carefully when I get back to Houston.
Here’s roughly the same view today:
The manhole cover seems to be in the same place, but now it’s flush with the ground. That strikes me as a significant improvement.
