It is always a happy occasion when we get an email from Mia D’Avanza, the Mertz Library's Reference Librarian and Exhibitions Coordinator, with the subject line, “good photos for you!” because Mia has a good eye and a great sense of humor. And the above photos are pretty awesome. As the document in the top right image says, the guys are doing SCIENCE! and in Mia's words, possibly SUPER SCIENCE! Whatever they're doing it appears to be part of the WPA. The Garden was home to a plethora of WPA projects in the 40s, and if we can figure out what these guys were up to, we'll update this post later. Until then, SCIENCE! ~AR
