I ran across these two images on a single piece of photo paper in a box of Elizabeth Baldwin Literary Society things. They were pretty clearly taken on the same night, as I think I recognize some of the dresses in both shots. They’re lovely and nearly unimaginable on campus today:
Note that rascal Dr. Joseph I. Davies in the top image, chaperoning yet another dance.
Unfortunately, the date on the back is smudged enough that I can’t be sure what it says. My best guess is 1961. Anyone have thoughts?
Bonus: Thanks to loyal reader Marty Merritt for this haunting image of the old Bostonian lamps being removed from the sidewalks near the Shepherd School. They look decapitated.
I think they had to go because they interfered with the Turrell light shows. Remember this?
