Where’d I See That?

Hey—finally—the snow is gone from this and other campus roofs. Gone, but surely not forgotten after such a long winter. If you think you know where this photo was taken, please stick your answer inside the hatband of a Montecristi Panama hat, size 7 3/4, and send it to Newsline, 120 Alumni Center, 229 Main St., Keene, NH 03435.

What is this? Where is it? And what the heck’s it doing there?

Gravity Monument

Where’d I See That?

Well, things are looking up at KSC. And if you’ve been looking up, you might have seen this sight. Where is it? What is it?

Even the new governor has seen this one! It’s not that big of a mystery, but it sure shows some of the great training KSC offers its students.

Here’s another one that doesn’t exactly fit into the “Where’d I See That?” category. But it’s just so perfectly Keene State. And so darn cute.

OK, it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out what this is. So this is more of a “Photo of the Month” post. Extra points if you know where it was taken. Photo courtesy of Campus Safety Officer Mike Gomez.

The Alumni Gateway, missing its original finial.

Where’d I See That?

Last month, the challenge in our “Where’d I See That” photo was to guess what was missing, and we promised to tell the rest of the story this month. So here goes:

The Alumni Gateway, missing its distinctive finial.

The finial was gone from the right column of the Alumni Gateway in front of Parker Hall. Back in September, some dastardly vandals had broken this historical feature off. (So it wasn’t exactly a surprise that Director of Campus Safety Amanda Warman, who must have investigated the crime, was the first one to answer the puzzle.)

When Assistant Director of Physical Plant Bud Winsor looked into replacing the finial, he was dismayed to learn that no one in the area could duplicate it. That was a serious dilemma—the gateway is one of the College’s most distinctive architectural features. It was like a tooth was missing in the College’s charming smile.

The column now, perfectly restored to its former glory.

But serendipity was to have a hand. One of the grounds crew was having lunch at a downtown Keene eatery when Ed Dimeco approached him. Ed used to have a local business making ornamental objects out of cement, and he’s the one who made the original finials. Ed mentioned that he still had the molds and asked if Keene State might want them.

With the original molds and some expert cement work, the column was soon restored to its former glory and replaced by Bud and his crew this mild December morning. Like the bard said, “All’s well that ends well!”

OK, this did remind me of the cool flames painted on the hood of my ’57 Chevy BelAir. So where on campus is this?

If you think you know where, please write your answer on a piece of paper and stick it under the windshield wiper of a lovingly restored 1957 Chevy BelAir—with clear title—and park it outside the Newsline offices, 120 Alumni Center, 229 Main St., Keene, NH 03435. Or use the “comments” link, below.
