I found the picture that I posted last Friday—a high-spirited lass and her boyfriend outside the Episcopal Community House—in a student scrapbook that I haven’t spent a lot of time with until now. I was also astonished to find this image, quite blurry but the only one I’ve ever seen taken inside the building:
Not exactly luxurious, is it? If you look at this shot of the outside, I think the windows look like they line up right.
Almost miraculously, in the same scrapbook, carefully tucked in the back, was this little pamphlet that explains the purpose of the House and the activities and services it would sponsor. This is one of the most interesting things I’ve come across recently, a little bit of insight into daily student life out on the edge of the city. It’s kind of a mixed bag—I knew about the dances and I expected the religious activities, but I was a little surprised by the barbershop “for the beautification of the men students” and the Pressing Club.
