    I just stumbled upon a photo of some Dartmouth students in 1970:

    The photo caption reads “a group of Dartmouth “sysprogs” circa 1970.”


    Notice the abundance of facial hair.

    And one very old lacrosse stick.

  3. Chewco’s 1970 photo shows System Programming students gathered around a gigantic dot-matrix computer printer. They’re Techies, seventies-style.

    Exactly. Most probably because of [them] I am able to type this to you from my computer. I respect them and salute them wholeheartedly albeit with a furrowed brow.

  5. Funny how lots of Heyday Ivy translates to modern-day Indie Hipster. The crowd in the pic look like they just returned from a Belle & Sebastian concert in Brooklyn.

    Speaking of vintage images of college campuses, tomorrow is the 101st Hey Day at UPenn. this is an amazing tradition taking place on the last day of classes, before finals, in which the junior class celebrates their ascension to senior status by sporting boaters and carrying canes for a parade on campus. This is a great vintage of photo from 1916. http://dla.library.upenn.edu/dla/archives/detail.html?id=ARCHIVES_20050114005

  7. Classic, American style. A little too casual (see t-shirt) but still has that clean, sporty spirit.

  8. Any White Bucks here? I see plenty of white socks.

    And I note that the chap lying recumbent like Nero in front is clearly No Shoe Guy…

  9. @S.E. I ‘m not up to date on how a “modern – day indie hipster” dresses but I find it hard to believe that the crowd at a ” Bell and Sebastian concert in Brooklyn” looks anything remotely like the kids in that pic.

  10. denim turn-ups, super skinny chino jeans, and (believe it or not) slim-fitting button downed oxfords. Oh, and the 60s-era “horn rims.” You’ll see plenty of canvas sneakers, desert boots, and mocs at Terminal 5, Bowery Ballroom, or Mercury Lounge.

    The overlap of neo-prep and urban hipster is real, like it or not. Taken out of the context in which the stood and studied, any one of the lads in the picture could be placed in a J. Crew catalog, which, these days, is a market-driven salute to the whole retro-vintage-neo-prep thing. And so, by the way, could the members of Belle & Sebastian.


  11. Looking at the photos of the band in the link you provided SE, all I can say is I rest my case.
