Shoes of Merit Only

Bad Banana went leafing through a 1923 yearbook from UC Berkeley, thanks to the digital offerings of Learning to Share. I’m glad he did, because it’s startling (and instructive) to see just how different the world was 85 years ago.
It’s not just media that’s changed, but culture itself. Can you imagine a Berkeley man in 1923 wearing Crocs to class? Going to college was a serious endeavor back then. It required shoes of merit only.
