Hello Friends! I’m back from London and Paris, and because I have been gone for a week and some we are going to jump right into today’s ‘Vintage Photo Tuesday‘ without further delay.

Today’s VPT is all about School Club’s.

This student group from the University of Chicago is unidentified on their website, but I’m going to assume that is probably the Book Club.

  1. Sorry, I’m a little behind on my blog reading, so only just getting to this one now! I love these photos, they all look like fabulous clubs to belong to. I particularly like the one of the book club from Chicago, those glasses are hilarious! I do also love the lady’s hat on the let of the Ski Club, Wisconsin, that’s so cute! xx
