One of ther least-changed views of the campus?
I decided to find out, so iPhone in hand went down to the courtyard to recreate the classic photo:
Pretty close but the lens angle isn’t quite wide enough to get the full vista. Of course it wouldn’t be authentic if I didn’t have a version in SEPIATYPE!
And for comparison, here’s the original postcard. Gone are a couple of chimneys and a few new plants have been added over the decades but otherwise it’s pretty similar – Roy could be right!
