Bochum, Bonn, and the Burton Tower

I left UofT and the Burton Tower in 1967. I left Bochum (RUB) in 1975 and Bonn in 2010.
On Wednesday - the same one as in the previous 2 blogs - Norbert in Bonn told me that Reinhard of Bochum (RUB) and previously of Bonn (MIfR) where we became friends and played soccer for the MPIfR as well, would be in Toronto at CITA to give a talk on MHD turbulence in GMC under the influence of cosmic rays. Seemed like a natural to go visit him since it was March Break aka Reading Week and there might not be so many students there as normal.

I took some impressions for old time sake, from the north clockwise to the right to the east:

The small dome at the right edge is the McLaughlin Planetarium

University College is at theleft/north end of the common and Convocation Hall is at the right end - in the lower picture. I can hardly recognize the university for so many new buildings.
