This week's photography spotlight is not about one photographer, rather one collection of photography. 150 Years of Vassar is just that... a history of the university told through 150 years of photography. The photos range from the women's 1901 basketball team in their wool turtlenecks and Gibson girl hairdos through present day. Of course my interest in the photos waned around 1969 when the photos turned color (and boys were admitted to the university!).
It was so much fun to scroll through the photos and see the evolution of fashion from completely modest long sleeve dresses to floral cotton smocks to preppy skirts and loafers. Here are just a few of my favorites. Well, there are a lot of photos here, but I had a lot of favorites!
