Isn't this Flagler College now?

I toured it a few years ago and it is a very luxurious and beautiful building.

I couldn't imagine having meals in that grand dining room--a far cry from the usual college dining experience.

Hey, Herbie --

Every time I see a high-crowned bowler like the one on the gentleman at lower left, I try to scour the Internet to find one for myself.

No luck so far.

Could we put on

ANY more clothes !

What's the season?

By way of the shadows the sun seems to be pretty high.

But both the ladies and the gentlemen are sumptuously dressed. Must have been pretty warm and comfy.

I had an great-great uncle who checked in there at about the time this photo was taken. He was 70 years old at the time. I still get a postcard from him every Christmas.
