A view of the construction of William M. Rice Institute's Administration Building. The back wall of the Administration Building, with the free-standing arches and columns for the intended cloisters, can be seen. Scaffolding is visible in the upper left-hand corner. In the foreground is a deep trench lined with the stone structures through which piping will run. The piled-up earth from the trench can be seen, along with a steel cable which cuts across the area, passing above the trench. Written along the lower half of the photograph: "Breaks for Admission of Pipe near Administration Bldg." Original resource is a black and white photograph.
