Puma's eye view of the Museums Annex prior to demolition.

Luckily for us, Mark O’Brien, collections manager of insects at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology, moonlights as a photographer. O’Brien, his camera, and his keen eye ventured in and around the Museums Annex before and during its recent demolition (to make way for the new Biological Sciences Building) and captured these captivating, and now historical, images.

LIVE ANIMALS shipment. I wonder what was in there?
