This unique view shows bicycles parked at Hinton James dormitory in the 1960’s. The dorm is named in honor of the first student to enroll at UNC in 1795. James walked to campus from his hometown in Wilmington.
The dorm bearing his name is located he farthest away from classes, hence the need for bicycles.

A faithful NCM reader pointed out this digital project created by the North Carolina State Library:
Up & Out: Urban Development in North Carolina
The site “houses around 500 documents created throughout the 1960s that speak to future town planning and urban development of North Carolina counties, cities, neighborhoods, and lakes.” They will be adding more reports in the future, so after you look at it today be sure to keep checking it out for updates.
