Anyone on campus who walks by the College of Architecture and Planning building along McKinley Avenue will likely recognize the metal CAP sign tucked in amongst the landscaping. It's located on the west side of the building, which served as the main entrance before the 1980 addition moved its main entrance to the south side.
It was built in a "Hands-on Steel" class from 1975. We recently uncovered photographs in our CAP Images Collection that were taken during its fabrication. The picture above is how it looks today, February 28, 2012, at 37 years old, and below is how it looked with its first layer of paint back in 1975--yellow!
