Throwback Thursday: Road Trip Edition

Each week we’ll be posting a photograph from University Archives that shows a scene from KU’s past. We’ve also scanned more than 34,800 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

Tomorrow – the Friday before Memorial Day – is National Road Trip Day. Do you have any travel plans for this long holiday weekend?
