Only Harvard students will know
Wow ! So well done. I went to Harvard in 1985. We knew about a number of these stories. Whoever created this app must be a Harvard alumni. Very good stories for all the structures that are in the Harvard yard. I wish the app would cover the entire extended university. Anyway, overall very good.
