Throwback Thursday!

aI couldn't resist posting this picture of Kimball Hall at the University of Maine in Machias, Maine, where I lived my freshman and sophomore years of college.  During our sophomore year, my roommates, Joy Fitzherbert and Gail Wood and I shared the "premier" spot in the dorm:  it was referred to as "the apartment" and consisted of one large room, a smaller room, and our own private full bath, and was directly adjacent (through the window) to the porch roof.

In the spring, we would throw our pillows and blankets out the window onto the porch  roof and lie out on the roof to get a tan.  The rail detail around the edge of the porch roof served as a barrier to hide us from people on campus, although I understand we posed a bit of a distraction for male students in the second floor laboratory in the classroom building across the street and just slightly higher up the hill!

Those were the days!

A FUN memory, you little minx!!

The balconies on our dorm were not large, we rotated our parts!

Stephen Hayes said...

Too bad you don't have pictures of vintage sunbathers. I know; I ask for too much.

Eva Gallant said...

Yamini: Isn't that the truth!

fishducky: those days were fun!

Joanne: Exactly which parts did you rotate?

Stephen: I wish I had pictures...I was trim and hot back in the day! lol

Al Penwasser said...

Yeah, if I was on that second floor, I never would have gotten any work done.

Al Penwasser said...

But, Stephen makes a very valid point. The Internet can only do so much, you know.

What? No bikini clad photos?
I can imagine all those boys getting no work done at all while you girls were out sunbathing.

Anthony Stevens said...

those lucky boys ;)

Al: You mean you were easily distracted?

River: I'm afraid my college days were B.B.= Before Bikinis!
