Chemistry Building groundbreaking ceremonies
Schleuter, Frank J.
Seven men standing outside around some dirt that has been put inside a wooden raised bed. This is part of the Chemistry Building's groundbreaking ceremonies. Five of these men are wearing cap and gowns (with one also holding a shovel), one man is wearing a suit and another man is wearing a priest's outfit. Next to the men is a covered stand with some wooden chairs on it. The Administration Building and some other buildings can be seen in the background. On the bottom right side of the photograph, "6-4th, 1929" and "Schleuter, 3617 Main, Houston, Tex" is written in white ink. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
