T Puzzle: Whoa--I Know My ABCs!

by Matt Sakai

The 26 letters were clipped from 13 photographs of public locations on campus, two from each picure. Pair up the letters and find the original locations. Each pair of depicted letters immediately brackets a single letter, which is used for the solution.

The letters must then be ordered according to the building number where they are found (in ascending order), to produce the final answer REMOVE A LETTER.

The pairs are:
