Achievement 8: Image Unlocked!

Their pretty white dresses ... with guns on their hips!

While the building over the roadrunner's shoulder may be a little hard to see, Tucsonans can see the original building still standing on the University of Arizona campus. Built to house the library of the state's first university, it has had many additions and changes to its fa├žade in the intervening years. The library served students and faculty until 1976, and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
