A selection of print and image resources from the Westbrook College History Collection, housed within the Abplanalp Library, is featured in this glossy, colored photograph taken in the late 1990s. WCHC holdings on display in the foreground include: The Blue Stocking literary magazine, The Margray news magazine, The Tower yearbook, and a black & white photo of the Library-in-a-church.

Three photos in the background include: Luella Deering Burnham and her twin sister, Estella Deering, 1878 Westbrook Seminary graduates, who are wearing their black-and-white-checkered silk graduation dresses at the 1931 centennial celebration of the school's charter; a Westbrook Seminary turn-of-the-century football team; and the girls' basketball team in June 1899.
