Skywatch Friday


Just a peek of afternoon sky as seen through the arches of Woods Hall on the University of Alabama campus. Woods Hall is the building behind Goldie in yesterday's post. It was built during Reconstruction using materials salvaged from buildings burned by Croxton's Raiders at the end of the Civil War. It was named for the University's first president Alva Woods and housed the entire University for about twenty years. It's Gothic design was patterned after buildings at Virginia Military Institute. Woods Hall now houses the Art Department.
Please visit Skywatch Friday to see interesting skyward views from around the globe.
