What’s the Story Behind This Old Photo
We stumbled upon an archive of old, unlabeled UB photos that prompted us to do a little sleuthing, and we need your help. Do you know the people pictured in this image? Do you know when or why this photo was taken? Fill us in: Contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 410.837.6131 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We received not one, but two stories about this photo published in the last issue. According to Bill Lepson, a former longtime UB plant operations employee, these students are watching a rainy soccer game while staying dry inside the former St. Paul’s School, which owned the athletic fields now known as Northwest Baltimore Park until UB bought them in 1952. Bill Gideon, B.A. ’70, thinks the photo was taken in front of the Kappa Sigma Kappa fraternity house on Lanvale Street north of Penn Station.
