Notes

A cropped version of this photograph appears in Victoria Reports (Nov 1951). According to the article, "[t]he sophomore executive had the bright idea of making the freshmen do something useful as well as strenuous, so took them out to a converted war-time housing plant near Scarborough, handed them pots of paint and brushes (obtained cost free) and set them to work on the drab corridors of the barrack-like buildings. The walls - and the freshmen - were a wonderful sight in sea-mist green. Buckets of turpentine and a truckload of wieners provided a happy ending of the day."
