Camp One Iron Ring

Abstract, Camp One Iron Ring, Iron Ring, U of T, University of Toronto

An image of the Camp One Iron Ring office at the University of Toronto which is the office that manages the replacement of lost rings. The office had an old feel to it and since it brought back so many memories I decided to go with the sepia look. If you’d like to know more about the iron ring then wikipedia summarized it best:
The Iron Ring, sometimes also known as a Steel Ring, is a ring worn by many Canadian-trained engineers, as a symbol and reminder of the obligations and ethics associated with their profession. The ring is presented to graduates in a closed ceremony known as The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer,[1][2] that was developed with the assistance of English poet Rudyard Kipling. Accepting the ring is not a mandatory prerequisite to becoming a Professional Engineer, but is instead worn as a constant reminder to graduates of their responsibility to the public.
