Penn Pearls


The Penn campus has 'pearls' of numerous shapes and colors that may often go undetected unless an observer is particularly perceptive. As the University embarks on the new Campus Development Plan for the future phases of its expansion and construction, it is a good time to take a closer look at some of the facinating features found on the campus today. Below are some of the countless decorative details that make Penn's campus a delight to discover anew time and again.

Does anybody really know what time it is or where this clock with the Roman numerals tells of the passing of time?

How many of these artifacts do you recognize? To find out their identity and whereabouts try a lunch-time stroll around campus as spring blossoms. Or, cover a lot of territory in a whirlwind viritual tour at Almanac's website, www.upenn.edu/almanac where the images are in color and captioned. --Ed.
