Sixteen Westbrook Junior College students lounge in their pajamas in this sepia toned candid snapshot taken in Hersey Hall dormitory in 1949. Dressed in house coats and robes with scarfs covering their pin curls, the girls laugh and grin at the camera. They squeeze together and lean back against each other in an attempt to be seen.
