The history of Radcliffe College can be traced through reports and records, but photographs bring the stories to life. These stereographs (nearly identical images combined into a single 3-D scene when viewed through a stereoscope) were produced around 1940. Captions on the reverse read (top to bottom): “A room in Briggs Hall. Each dormitory at Radcliffe has all single rooms”; “Dedicated to browsing, the Agnes Irwin Room in the Radcliffe Library is a popular retreat”; and “In a corner of the Cabot Hall Dining Room.”
