Remembering Campus with Photo Prints

By Kiera Reilly, C’93

The countdown continues as this weekend, August 12-13, 2016, marks 91 weeks to our 25th reunion (May 11-13, 2018). #93tothe25th

I looked through a box of photos I have stored in my closet, and there aren’t that many from the Fall of 1989, the first semester of our freshman year at Penn. I do not remember what specific kind of camera I had, but it was surely a pretty basic one. Back in 1989, we took pictures with film and then had to take them to get developed. I most likely dropped these off at the CVS on campus.

There is one picture of the Upper Quad, and from the angle of it, I guess I took this from my room in the Franklin/Brooks-Leidy section on the second floor. Remember how when your photos were developed the date of the photos was printed on the front? This is what the Quad looked like on November 4, 1989.

The other photo is in Super Block in front of, “The Covenant,” although it’s better known as, “The Dueling Tampons.”
