A Westbrook Junior College work-study waitress waits on table in the Dining Hall connector between Hersey Hall and Goddard Hall in this 1954 black and white photograph by William M. Rittase, Philadelphia, PA. The waitress serves a fruit crumble topped with ice cream to each of the six students seated at the square, wooden dining table. In addition to the desserts in front of each student, there are glasses of water and milk and arrays of silverware. In the center of the table is a cloth napkin arranged with a sugar container, creamer, and salt and pepper shakers.

The Campus Green can be glimpsed through two curtained windows behind the waitress.
