1930s Meets Today


Postmarked in 1932, here’s a lovely postcard featuring the one and only Davie Hall (which apparently used to house the botany department!), the arboretum’s “pergola,” and a hysterical statement that any UNC student—of all generations—can relate to: “I don’t have any special plans for today except to try to catch up with my reading.”

With midterms just over (and coffee demand at the Daily Grind, Alpine, Student Stores, and Starbucks slowing down), I think all undergraduates know exactly what Lee C. meant.
