Your University, One Photo at a Time

Foundation Stone #2

Foundation Stone #2 To the left of yesterday’s photo is the other of the two foundation stones, laid down in 1868. The plaque reads:

THIS FOUNDATION STONE WAS LAID BY
H.R.H. ALEXANDRA, PRINCESS OF WALES
8TH. OCTOBER, 1868.

Now, for the interesting bit. Behind each foundation stone is a “time capsule” in a glass jar, from 1868. Wonder how long they’re supposed to stay in their resting places. (I did find in an old book what exactly was placed in the time capsules, but I’ll wait until October 8th to publish that.)
