photo of the week: El Campanil

Itook advantage of yesterday's gorgeous weather to run some errands and do some exploring. After years of telling people about El Campanil at Mills College, I finally went to see it myself. It started with the donation of the 10 bells by David Hewes. It was designed by Julia Morgan, and was one of the first reinforced concrete structures west of the Mississippi. The tower was a donation from "Borax" Smith and his wife.
