Work Description: 
This was taken around May 30 because it is spring and the late afternoon sun is on the north face of Main. Woodbury (1890) shows at left. On the near corner of Main is a big apparatus aimed at the North Star. It is probably an astronomical apparatus or part of a heliostat. Such things show in pictures of Hale after 1893. Note the way the walk was constructed in the foreground where wagons crossed the walk. This was to prevent wagons from breaking the flagstone. The last walk of this type near Guggenheim was replaced around 1970. The Anatomy building shows at the right and beyond it is the old medical building without its west wing which was used for the Law School around 1893. I place this picture 1890-(Woodbury)-1893 when physics moved to Hale. (See 17-6)
