Lincoln Way Winter Scene

Photo from 1925

Skaters on Lake LaVerne are seen from a camera positioned on an upper floor of the Gamma Sigma Alpha house on Lincoln Way.  In the foreground the Fort Dodge, Des Moines & Southern interurban is passing by.  Marston Water Tower and the top of Beardshear Hall are visible through the distant haze.  To the right is Morrill Road before it was straightened to meet Lynn Avenue.  Today, the ISU Memorial Union would be visible at the right, replacing the Sanitary Building.

The yellow arrow indicates the photo viewpoint.

This opposite view photo from the same 1925 ISC student's photo album shows Lake LaVerne from the north side.  The Gamma Sigma Alpha house is visible at the southeast end of the lake.

This 1914 photo faces west along Lincoln Way.  Although the structure at left was originally built for Gamma Phi Sorority, it was used by Zeta Iota, Gamma Sigma Alpha, and possibly other Greek houses before being replaced by Memorial Lutheran Church and Student Center.
