Look Familiar???

Who are these students and what are they doing?  Well we know the answer to the latter half of that question.  This photograph from the University Archives shows students taking part in the Pajamarino rally during Homecoming, circa 1950-1959.  Students wore pajamas and other adornments on their way to the train station to welcome back alumni the night before the big homecoming game. In looking at this picture can anyone identify these participants?  Narrow down the year?  As the 2011 Homecoming Week culminates next week with welcoming back alumni for the football game we thought we’d see if any alumni could offer up their own reminiscences of Pajamarinos past.  What kind of memories do you have?  Did you march in and out of local businesses to the beat of the marching band on your way to the station?  This pajama clad group seems to have appropriated an old fire truck, how did you make your way to the station to greet alumni returning by train?
