In the photo, Inside photographer Bob Elbert is at the Pammel shelter
in the former West Pammel Court family student housing neighborhood. The
picnic shelter, a Civilian Conservation Corps project, dates to the 1930s;
the playground equipment was added sometime later. All saw extensive use
through the early 1990s. Today, children from the University Community
Childcare are about the only visitors. The new Environmental Health and
Safety building, construction of which begins this fall, will not impact the
West Pammel picnic area.
