Throwback Thursday at KU: Do you remember the Glass Onion? Fred Sadowski, a photograher for the Kansan, wrote on the back of this photo: "The Glass Onion, 624 W. 12th St., is a popular place for undergraduates to meet. The coffee shop offers a variety of drinks, food, and a good place to study." We can still taste the milkshakes. KU History
