Found in the Archives: 1st Floor, Main Building

In the archives recently, we found a picture from sometime in the 1950s in the hallway on the first floor of the Main Building We then took a picture in exactly the same spot. Sixty years apart and so much has changed that it might not even be the same building! We can make out Clove Gum, Hershey bars, and Baby Ruths on the table. What else was on offer? Do you recognize anyone in the photo or know what year it was taken? (If so, please e-mail us at alumniprograms@cushing.org) These days, Cushing students get their candy fix by visiting Ms. Fay in the Headmaster's Office--and she still has Hershey Bars and Baby Ruths. Some things never change.
