Time Capsule: 1903

Massey Hall 1903

Today it’s a nondescript, grassed-over stretch between Massey Hall (pictured above in 1910) and Winegard Walk. But for the first half of the 1900s, the campus water reservoir attracted passersby, and even swimmers and skaters. Measuring 100 by 60 feet and about 10 feet deep, the pool was installed in 1897 for a practical reason.
