Mystery Monday: a way in

We love this wrought iron gate. It’ll surely be familiar to many of you. Where on campus did we find it?

    This gate is on St. Ronan St. downhill from the Divinity School. After a snowfall, this is a great spot to use a dining hall tray as a sled.

    Thank you, Mark, for all your great photographs of Yale. Would you please tell your stumped audience the locations of these past Mystery Monday postings? -> May 10, April 5, March 22, Mar 1 of 2021? <> The November 9, 2020 mystery I now realize must be the ceiling of the Manuscripts and Archives department in Sterling Library.

    You are correct, Mr. Huthsteiner. Thanks for your continued interest; sorry for not keeping up with some of the past mysteries! May 10 (decorative scroll) was the Walter Camp Memorial gate on Derby Avenue near the Yale Bowl. April 5 (Pierson memorial) was in Saybrook College's Killingworth Court. March 22 (Chinese characters representing Yale-China) was on the side of Berkeley College facing Cross Campus. And March 1 (wrought iron "yales") was on the gate at the Cross Campus entrance to William L. Harkness Hall. And November 9, 2020, was the ceiling of the Memorabilia Room in Sterling, though I'm pretty sure the ceiling in Manuscripts and Archives is similar if not identical.

    Awesome. Thank-you again, Mark. Those wrought iron "yale beasts" by Samuel Yellin sure seem to be everywhere.
