These are a great look back. And I love the blue tones of the photographs - very appropriate, with all that water!
so enjoy these pictures.
My brother participated in this event in the early 70s, representing Princeton. I have a few snapshots. He had a blast!
These pics are wonderful! I love them all but the lobster bibs gave me a chuckle.
Looks like my husband fishing locally-the style has not really evolved much in 40 years.
Muffy - These are some of the most amazing pictures! I can't get enough of them. I want to frame them all for my walls. Where else could you see a Yale student wearing creased khakis and a perfect Navy sweatshirt wrestling with a fish? There are echoes of Boys' Life Magazine from an earlier time and precursors to a J. Crew fake advertising campaign from a later time. I can't believe how real these all are, yet so perfect. Thank you for making my day.
Those old Novi's are some of the most weatherly boats ever built and elegant besides. Feasting my eyes . . . GREAT pictures. The guys, the fish, the clothes--and those old Ray Bans never, ever change. A delight!
Great to see the chamois cloth shirt in action. At least I think that's what the bright red one is.
Oh my word! The photos are lovely and I got a few pangs of nostalgia seeing those jumpers and Chuck Taylor high tops. SIGH!!!!!The boats all seem to be painted the same color, no?
Love the old Novis!
Oh, I agree with Paul. I used to shoot Kodachrome, and it is amazing how vibrant the colors remain.
@PaulThanks for all that info! You're right, the imagery is very sharply defined. I'd been struck by how "current" these photos look and wasn't convinced it was all down to the classic clothing. I think you've given me the answer to that question.
What a wonderful post!
Mmmmm, ain't no school like the old school! These pictures are simply marvelous!
