Work Description: 
Beautiful late afternoon picture taken from the bridge over the lake on a Saturday in the fall. Through the trees to the right of Main is a part of the Chemistry building. The Anatomy building is seen clearly. The stands on Gamble Field are crowded (hence the Saturday-- it's football time). One person is standing on the library steps-- one bike is parked by the steps, and the fire hydrant is barely visible behind two small trees and is about 20 feet west of the steps. Two buggies with horses are parked to the right of the library-- the owners no doubt are at the game. The tower of the University Hill school can be seen to the right of a nearby tree and a big barn is to the right-- and then the observatory can be seen.
