11939-0706_detail-thumb-450x295-11938.jpg

For the 10th installment of the “Where are we?” contest, we have taken the advice of readers and tried to supply a photo that can stump our eagle-eyed fans of Princeton architecture. If you can identify this image, then you probably spent part of your time on campus looking up.

 
Where are we? Post your answer on PAW’s Facebook page or e-mail it to PAW. The first correct response will earn a Princeton-themed prize. (Past winners are not eligible for the prize.)
 
Update: Facebook fan Nicole Basta ’03 recognized the image above as the ceiling of an archway between Foulke and Henry halls. One of our former student bloggers, recent graduate John Wetenhall ’11, also correctly identified the photo via e-mail. To see a different view of the location, click below.
