After I struggled so hard to figure out when yesterday’s undated picture was taken this one seems almost comically easy. It’s labeled “dorm interior, no date” and it’s actually kind of interesting. Note the reflection of the light fixture in the mirror. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one of those ceiling lights before. We have very few photos of the inside of the dormitories from the early years but there are scads of them from after about 1980. (I could speculate about the reasons for this but it probably isn’t prudent.)
In any event here you have it:
It’s the images on the wall, of course, that make this easy to date. Although I can’t get a good enough look at the five guys at bottom left to say exactly who they are I certainly recognize the track uniforms that we used from 1921 to 1924. The real giveaways are the two panoramic photos on either side of the dresser. They both show the gathered male student body outside the dorms and were taken on February 27, 1922. Here’s the one on the left (if you’d like to zoom in and examine it more closely, there’s a better version here):
Bonus: Pre-commencement cleanup. Everything gets a good scrubbing.
