    Thanks Mark. These older universities built back in the days of classier architecture are among my favorite places to visit. I’ve heard of Cornell (of course) but these are the first pics of seen of it. Reminds me of Rhodes University in Memphis. There’s a great story behind the building of Rhodes … seems a would be student had no cash flow, however, he’d inherited an abandoned stone quarry from his grandfather. The boy swapped all the stone they could use for a complete education. A look at the campus is evidence of just how much stone the university received in exchange of a college degree! I’ll upload a few pics of Rhodes University to my bubble just in case you’d like a look-see

  • Philip, glad you’re enjoying these, and thanks very much for your comments. Cornell’s campus encompasses a steep hillside, two deep gorges, and there are great walks, steps, bridges as well. Nearby Watkins Glen gorge is in a class by itself; much of the nearly two miles of stonework there was built during the Great Depression, by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The Rhodes swap is a great story; looking forward to checking out the pics.
