A portion of the Sallyport is visible, along with the roof of Fondren Library on the other side of the Academic Quad. A rooster is in the foreground, having paused in its passage across the lawn. The photograph was taken by David Hale. Written on the margins of the photograph: 'PG. 8, 50 1/2%, Black /PMS 6525 duotone', and, 'David Hale 1993'. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
