The Seven Steps at the Power House

I visited the University of Illinois again, earlier this month, for a short whirlwind of research activity. Stopped by the old CERL building aka The Power House, and snapped some photos. Here's the stairway, the famous steps, oh what a story these steps could tell... (and if you have any stories about these steps and this entranceway, email me)...
