Vintage image: Hort students wore fancier duds in the 1920s—even in the field.

A CALS Facebook posting of a vintage photo of a horticulture class generated a few questions. Some sleuthing by UW Archivists Vicki Tobias and David Null turned up a little bit of backstory on this circa-1929 image. Go to the CALS Facebook page for the discussion. If you’d like to orient yourself to the campus of that era, see this 1923 map.
