Two From the 1920 Campanile

I normally don’t bother posting images from yearbooks because they’re such low quality, which is kind of a shame. They’re often indescribably bizarre, particularly some of the ones from the early years, which come from a world that is so long lost to us. I’m making an exception for these two, which I found yesterday while looking for pictures of Helen Redfield. Because what the heck.

This first one grabbed my attention because I’d never seen a closer look at the original Chemistry annex. Even after I scanned it and blew it up I didn’t notice what was off to the right until about the fourth time I looked at it.

Then there’s this. I don’t even know what to say, except that it strikes me as evoking this era especially well. Don’t overlook the hats, which were the “of the moment” men’s fashion in 1920.

Also, I’m working on a post about Rice Field and aviation here in the early 1920s. It might take a while, though. I have to slog through microfilm.

Bonus: Roof repair on Sewall Hall.
