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.
