I started writing an actual post last Friday, which I hope to get back to eventually. But I had some frustrating issues with my new laptop for work and spent the weekend losing way too much time to that situation. The problem seems to be resolved now, which is lucky since I have loads to do before school starts next week!

Anyway, tonight while searching through my iPhone camera roll to find a photo for my daughter, I came upon these pictures I took last February of some electrical conduits in the basement parking garage of MSOE’s Campus Center. (At least, I assume that’s what they are; I’m just an interested layperson😄)

Just as the rest of the Campus Center even today retains much of its beautiful, curved Streamline Moderne styling (from its 1940s-era beginnings as the Blatz Brewing Bottle House), these conduits and others running along the basement ceiling are almost a work of art and a reminder that true quality extends beyond the obvious surface details.

    Your top photo reminds me of the tubes on an instrument…maybe a trumpet or a trombone!
